Have you ever wondered how to create moving images with nothing but your drawings? Jump in and get started with this class! Students will learn what it takes to create traditional hand-drawn animations with Open Toonz, a free illustration and cartooning program that is used by Studio Ghibli! Students will begin with the simple bouncing ball, stick figures, and finally onto a final project where they can add as much detail as they like.
