About This Class

In this foundational animation class we are going to learn how to animate a simple ball bounce in Photoshop.  This is the exercise every animator first learns when they begin their animation journey.  We will begin by using a simple exercise, the oh-so-amazing bouncing ball, to help us understand keyframes, movement and timing and then we'll move to a simple character walk later on!  This is going to be a ton of fun and anyone can do it!  If you've ever wanted to learn to do hand-drawn animation, this is the place!  Join up and we'll have you animating in no time.
