What will you learn?

Preparation

For each age group you'll be teaching we prepared a complete overview on all the materials, software and hardware you'll need to teach the course. We'll show you how to set up stop-motion equipment, or get the right 2D hand-drawn software ready.

Animation Jumpstart (Ages 6-10)

The first section of the course is aimed at kids under 11. It uses stop-motion as its main animation method. That includes claymation (using Play-Doh), legos, and cutouts. Whether you want to teach animation as an artistic skill or use animation projects as part of your teaching, this section will provide you with the knowledge and materials to help your students hit the ground running.

Animation Advanced (Ages 11 and Up)

This upper-level portion of our course is designed to serve as a roadmap to animation mastery for students age 11 and up. These lessons are focused on teaching universally applicable animation principles, and is useful for students regardless of the specific animation medium they ultimately want to pursue. The animation methods used in this section are stop-motion, 2D vector animation and 2D hand drawing.

Assignments

Each individual lesson includes an assignment for you to see how much your students absorbed the material covered in that lesson. They build on top of each other and progress in a steady yet challenging pace.

Final Projects

Both sections of the course (Jumpstart and Advanced) include a final project intended to combine all the skills they acquired in the course into one, longer project - making an animated film. The depth and level of quality required depends on the age group.

Super detailed, fast paced.

We hate long, dragged-out tutorials. We believe in bite-sized lessons with a clear structure that get straight to the point without skipping any important information. We’ll take you step-by-step through the process of teaching animation.

Super detailed, fast paced.

Animation training can get expensive.

Animation courses can be pricey, often in the thousands of dollars. These programs cover entire skill sets, including many topics you'll probably never use. Our courses are just the right size and very cost-effective, teaching exactly what you need to know to start teaching right away.
