VFX 3D Animation

Ms. Tabitha Daniel

A New School Year

I am excited to teach your child this coming school year. My name is Tabitha Daniel. I am a 2005 graduate of Liberty University with a communications degree. I have taught 3D animation, photography and graphic design in Greene County, Virginia before moving to the Shenandoah Valley last year.

My Classes

The field of 3D modeling and animation is such a broad one and changing constantly. In this class, you will learn how to model, texture and animate objects and scenes. We use the free open source program called Blender. You will be following along tutorials in a state of the art classroom complete with a professional 3D printer.

The second year becomes even more exciting. You will take the skills that you have learned in 3D Modeling 1 and expand them. We will be moving on to advanced animation including rigging characters. Rigging means to put a skeleton like system into the models causing them to move in a realistic way. We will also be learning an introduction to video game design.
