Animation has the capacity to inform and entertain by bringing sequences of images to life through motion. This unit introduces students to concepts of two dimensional animation, including the planning, design methodologies, and construction of animation as a means of visual communication. By exploring economical approaches to traditional and computer-aided animation, students will create two dimensional animations that integrate design features such as exaggeration and caricature, produced within the cultural and theoretical constructs that underpin it as a creative medium.
