CRYSTAL LAKE – Learn how to digitally design creatures and characters for animation or learn how to create illustrations for the web and print with two new digital media classes – “Character Development “ and “Digital Illustration” – offered by McHenry County College beginning in the spring 2014 semester.

These classes will train people for careers in animation and digital illustration.
