All I know is free hand drawing. Yeah, just drawing with pencil and paper and sometimes I play around on Paint and end up drawing doodles ^.^;
Well, I've got a decent amount of Experience with Flash , Photoshop, and the gist, but its really something that take's time and effort to learn, before taking it in College i'd suggest to download the trial version of Flash from Macromedia's website and start looking of some free (or payed (http://www.learnflash.com
<< Or something like that) tutorials to learn the basics of creating Flash Animation.
For example , making a website in Flash is really quite a simple task, my first attempt was uploading my first flash website (http://www.zsoccer.vze.com
), I have a few resources for tutorials (free one I believe) on my old PC at a friends house so i'll update this post with links if I can get them.
Adobe Photoshop really is not much more complicated, it , like flash, takes quite a bit of time to fully understand so you can use it to its full potential.
Remember though, Adobe Photoshop and Flash are quite expensive programs to purchase so start with tutorials or use a friends registered copy.
