Professional Animators will teach children the basic principles of Animation.
This is a hands-on class. Students get started immediately on sketching characters and arranging storyboards for their stories. They develop their characters and depending on how they wish to portray their characters, the animation class will provide them with lots of ideas on how to present their characters.
Background layout and design are covered in these classes and the characters are cut from paper and coloured in.
