New course in 2022.

I have enjoyed learning new skills in various Adobe apps, such as Adobe Photoshop and Animate. It is fun to learn how animation works. For an assessment, I created my own animated character. I love the freedom this course gives to developing our own creativity. Sophia Herrington
