After many years working in commercial animation in New York I began to teach students the art that is called “Classical animation.” While computer generated animation has come to dominate the field, I feel that traditional, hand drawn animation is something every animator should have a foundation in. My introductory course covers the basics of hand drawn animation for those planning to become animators of any kind.
