Animation and Cartooning Classes I specialize in private classes that include art principals, drawing, and animation. Students learn all aspects of creating a story, planning and illustrating it. Techniques and principals of design. My classes keep things fun and rewarding for students with final short animations that lead to a better understanding of the medium. I work with students of all abilities. Our student work share is private but I can send you examples if you request to see a few animations by students. What ages take animation classes? I currently work with school age students ages 7 to 18. I also do teacher training for art teachers.
How often should my child take class? As in any discipline art requires that kids put in the time to be able to move forward. I suggest classes once a week if possible for best results in progress. Students can take class 2 times a month as well. The single classes are useful to students that have more animation experience.

Carolyn Eastman Polly aka pollyzoom is a vastly gifted teacher and artist. She has worked with children, adults, totally inexperienced adults like me, and even special needs adults and children and inspired all to find joy in the self expression of creating art. She is a rare spirit, a talented and innovative teacher and I give her my highest recommendation. Mon Aug 13 2018
Jay Briggs Paula Allen aka Pollyzoom is an excellent teacher for the arts. Within a few sessions, she assisted my daughter to bring out her creativity and channel same into a portfolio for entrance into Magnet High School program for the Arts. My daughter's skills were enhanced and expanded and she successfully gained entrance into the art program of her choice. The experience increased my daughter's self-confidence. The combination of the work presented in her portfolio and her ability to free draw allowed her to achieve this accomplishment. I am very thankful that my daughter took lessons from Paula Allen. I give her the highest recommendation.
