In this course, students are introduced to both concepts and processes utilized in the production of digital 2D animation. Turn your drawings into moving images using compositing, layering, and collaging. Students are encouraged to experiment while building skills in software programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Flash, and After Effects. Trips to the Art Institute of Chicago and local galleries/studios, artist presentations, and group critiques supplement the studio experience.
*NOTE: Basic drawing and computer experience required. Previous experience in animation or with Adobe Creative Suite is helpful, but not required. SAIC provides computers with the appropriate software, but students are also encouraged to bring their own digital camera, tablet, and/or laptop for homework and after-studio hour projects.
Full Tuition Cost: $3,332
