Something…Different…

I am really excited to say that I am going to be leading  a new, amazing animation program with  The Art Department. Jason Manley and John English contacted me a while back about developing a program for the school. When I heard about all the things they have done and how passionate about education they were, I couldn’t say no. They really do want to change the face of art education and think the current system is broken and too expensive. I agree. I feel that animation education, brick and mortar and online can also be way better and has a long way to go. We want to provide the best experience and teachers possible. The education will primarily be provided online, but there will also be studio spaces where students can come to and work in a real collaborative environment. We also hope to offer free and low cost workshops for kids and adults and hold all kinds of events. We are putting together a list of instructors, guest instructors and advisors that will blow your mind! We are also going to be giving away a lot of scholarships to make it easier for students to be involved. We hope to start the first few students in fall. We also hope to be down at CTN to answer any questions and meet people. As always, thanks for supporting Spline Doctors. The site has always been about sharing and thats really what I want to continue to do. Its about making the next generation of great artists, animators and directors, not just plug in animators!
