Animation is the presentation of a sequence of still images that create the illusion of movement. Artists have explored animation for hundreds of years from early motion-based cave drawings to contemporary 3D films.  In the 19th century, artists like Edward Muybridge used the camera to create a stop-motion gallery of a horse’s locomotion. Today, both new and old technologies are employed at the school to enable students to study the craft of both 2D and 3D animation. Please see your advisor to discuss related course listings that pertain to this area called Animation.
