    Overview of Course and Work Expectations -Animation 1 and Animation 2 is designed to provide students with a foundation in the fundamentals of design and computer technology used in the art and design professions. Students will develop knowledge, concepts, technical skills and vocabulary necessary for computer digital illustration for print, the internet, and animation. Students will learn the Adobe Creative Suite software applications to create original artworks such as logo design, digital illustration and animation. Students are expected to employ planning and time-management skills to complete work tasks.

    Expectations for Canvas- We will use a hybrid method in regards to Canvas- meaning, we will use it on some assignments with the assignment being submitted through Canvas and other assignments will be completed in class and saved in their computer class period folder.

    Plan/Protocols for Students out for IN/QN (Quarantine or sick with COVID). If your child has access at home to a computer with the Adobe Software installed (Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Animate, Adobe After Effects) then e-mail me when your child is in quarantine and I can send them assignments. If your child does not have access to the software then they need to plan on attending my tutorials so I can assist them with getting caught up on learning the software and completing assignments.
