What are animations?

Congrats on learning how to make drawings with your programming skills! Now you’ll learn how to turn those drawings into animations, with only a few more lines of code.
First, though, let’s talk about what an animation is. How could you make an animation without programming?
You could make a bunch of drawings on pieces of paper, then flip those pieces of paper so the drawings go by in a sequence, and it would look like an animation. Well, it’d look like an animation if those drawings were each just a little bit different from each other.
