Animation Classes Online

A Catalog of Courses

We’re building a series of single-session one-hour classes delivered online using the Outschool platform.

These classes are designed to be taken in order or in an a la carte fashion, and as we continue to add more classes, they will range from introductory to intermediate to advanced.

Here is our expanding Outschool Course Catalog of animation classes. It’s best to consider taking these classes in order, but they are designed to be a la carte. We’re regularly adding more classes on Outschool, so be sure to check back often!
