“I am always so excited to join this class because even though I have been in it for almost seven years, I learn something new every time. This class has challenged me and helped me try new things that otherwise would have intimidated me in the past with art. The environment of the class is incredibly welcoming and fun, and Mr. Fisher is always eager to help. I have been able to use a lot of what I’ve learned in this class in actual animation jobs. This class is perfect for beginners as well as for those who have been doing art for a long time.” —Amanda H.
