    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it really helped me get a basic grasp of movement and human anatomy. It also forces you to draw all the time which is very good for an aspiring animation major.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the basic constructions of the human body, how the neck and ribcage are very important to drawing people, especially in an animation context. As well as the fact that in animation, the more exaggerated, the better.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Manage your time well, PLEASE. If you do even a little bit each day, you will be far less overwhelmed when the deadline comes. If you're bad at time management and focusing like myself, doing the homework with a group of friends is always helpful!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is an amazing learning experience. If you want to work hard, bond with your classmates, and grow as an artist, I highly recommend it.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to quickly make proportionate, dimensional gesture drawings of models by starting with their skeleton and building the muscles on top.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Start early on the projects and don't underestimate the work load. Working with classmates on homework is a good idea.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you're going to be doing anything with drawing people or animals, this course is for you. Within 10 weeks you learn so much more about how to draw people to communicate a certain emotion, to create aesthetically pleasing gesture drawings, to exaggerate the poses. This is where you learn some animation basics!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were the model drawing every class. You learn so much by drawing every class period and it's pretty fun. I learned how to draw people more expressively and more fluidly. I learned how to draw poses that actually attract the eye.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely go to the open model sessions every Friday. Draw outside of class as well, draw every chance you can get and practice practice practice. It will help and you'll see so much improvement.
