I prefer unconventional methods that suits the student individually. On learning animation by short exercises and feedback, a strong basics an be created, which is essential in a strong demo reel.
This class is for everyone who is interested in learning drawing and animating but don't know where to start, or anyone who knows the basics but need a stronger understanding.
I currently teach 2D rigging in Toon Boom Harmony at Victoria College of Art.
I am an undergraduate in Engineering who went on to learn Animation in Canada. I've taught art classes for adults as well as kids. I want to help people with their drawing skills as well as with animation whether it is an animation short, basics of drawing or illustration.

Perfect! My daughter really enjoys her drawing lessons with Akshaya, and her drawing is getting a lot better!
Good at understanding concepts and remembering them.
Akshaya is an excellent instructor, very patient and professional.The training was clear and detailed. I was very impressed with her teaching methods . Thanks for the great job.
My daughter, who is autistic, is really enjoying her animation lessons from Akshaya! She says Akshaya is her favorite tutor. She can be a handful, I'm particularly impressed with Akshaya's work with her.
