This class teaches an important practical balance between working digitally and working with natural media. Students will need the following:

1) Blank paper (a sketchbook is recommended), pencils, sharpener, and an eraser.

2) ONE of the following digital devices to draw and animate with:
A – Windows or Mac desktop or laptop computer with a basic drawing tablet: I recommend the Wacom Intuos S drawing tablet
B – Touch screen Chromebook with a drawing stylus
C – iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil
D – iOS or Android touchscreen device (older iPad, iPhone, Android tablet, smart phone, or Kindle Fire) with a drawing stylus: We recommend the Adonit Pro drawing stylus available on their website for $30. Also, right now the Adonit Pro 3 is available on clearance for $18

3) The following apps installed:
Rough Animator app ($7)

4) A digital device with internet access and the zoom app installed to connect to and participate in our Live Q&A Question and Answer Sessions – it can be the same device used for #2 above, but it is often easier to follow along if these devices are separate.
