Location: Mission Viejo Family YMCA
Learn to think and draw like an animator in this fun exploratory class. Students learn how to design and draw an animated character, how to design background paintings, how to paint an animation cell and more. Simple flip books are created as well as clay sculptures for drawing models. Students also learn basic storyboarding and have a 'story meeting' session to create a group cartoon. Vintage Disney is the primary inspiration for the class, but we look at modern animation as well.
Supplies: drawing pad, pencil, ruler, fine felt tip pen. Other supplies like clay, tracing paper, and acetate are included in the class fee.
