3D Design Animation

In this 3D animation course for kids, students start out learning the history of 3D animation and imaging and get to know the 3D modeling software Blender. Students will go through modeling their first character, adding colors, textures, and materials, building in a full range of motion and movement animation skills. Then, students will build an environment from the ground up for their animated character as they tinker and explore Blender in new ways. We don’t stop there, students review the basics of Blender’s game engine and…yep you guessed it, get to create their own simple game using the engine. This wouldn’t be a complete course without an entrepreneurial spin on making money with 3D modeling, animation, and blender either, thus, students will examine careers and ways to make money with their newly acquired Blender skills.
