This course will provide you with an introduction to digital animation using Adobe Animate CC and Wacom Cintiq tablets.

On this course you will:

- learn the fundamentals of animation including timing and spacing
- create animated ball bounces and walk cycles
- study the movement of balloons and other objects
- create character turnarounds
- build your own short animation that demonstrates a personal approach. You can have little or no previous animation knowledge to attend and still achieve great results.

What will you gain?

By the end of the course you will have a good understanding of the Adobe software and its capabilities, and you will have produced a series of short projects that demonstrate your new skills in making crazy animated characters.

Level: Open to all

Entry requirement: You should have an enthusiasm for animation and an interest in developing your creative and technical skills.

Where you'll learn: You will be based in the School of Art and Design on the City Campus. You'll find collaborative working spaces where you develop your sketches and concepts, and Mac suites equipped with industry standard software and hardware including Adobe Animate, Wacom Cintiq Touch Tablets and Pro Creative Pens. You'll also have access to the library to use outside of your short course; whilst you can't reserve or take away books, you are welcome to use them as a resource for research and referencing.

Here's what previous attendees said:
