Animation is fun and it's a joy to see your character moving and talking on the screen. In this weekend workshop, time will be spent learning enough of the Maya interface, tools, and functions, to be able to play around with a cartoony rig and create a few scenes.

On Saturday, we will learn about the interface and rig controls, then dive into animating a few short movement tests.

For Sunday, the focus will switch to facial expressions and animating dialogue!  When we’re done, you’ll be leaving the class with lots of additional information so you can continue exploring the world of animation!!

Prerequisite: Maya 101 or equivalent knowledge.
