Very inspiring course! Love it! I learn a lot from the shape language. Combine basic shapes with daily objects is also fun. And your animation is so cute and adorable! Also love the music you select a lot!

Let’s feel great around the camera!

This is a super fun and creative class. The teacher knows what she is talking about and she shows many fun techniques and examples. It all looks very doable. Great music too!
