This is a Beginner-Level Workshop, no experience with Blender is necessary. Recommended for ages 7 and up.
Thank you for visiting FX Dojo, the only facility in San Diego where kids can be creative in virtual space using Blender, the most popular OPEN SOURCE animation app available today.
There are many 3D apps for your mobile device or desktop computer. Some boast about how intuitive their software is, and try to attract artists with an over-simplified interface. But for many creative students, these “kid-friendly” applications are actually a handicap, limiting imagination in exchange for a gentler learning curve. At FX Dojo, kids are respected as advanced thinkers, and encouraged to explore their unlimited potential, using a state-of-the-art tool. Blender is the 3D powerhouse that is taking over the professional marketplace but you don't have to be a veteran artist to use it. Young minds respond well to the idea of total freedom, and Blender provides the perfect virtual environment for infinite possibilites.
USE THIS CLASS AS A JUMPSTART, SO YOU CAN LEARN MORE ON YOUR OWN
There are so many tutorials on Youtube! But it’s much easier to take advantage of them if you have a strong foundation of basics. Students will be able to speed through Youtube videos in fast forward after just the first class. Recognizing interfaces and understanding layouts helps you become a self-sufficient digital artist.
BUILD CONFIDENCE AND DIGITAL PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS
Learning Digital Art is about more than just clicking on buttons, it’s about how to overcome barriers. Once you learn how to solve the most common digital problems, being faced with an intermediate one isn’t as scary. At FX Dojo, students continuously apply what they’ve learned to reach new ground, essentially practicing life lessons on computer.
ENJOY THIS CAREFULLY CRAFTED LEARNING EXPERIENCE
I put a lot of time developing the Intro to Blender Series because I want everyone’s initial experience to be positive and fun. Getting to know every student as soon as possible helps me customize the class based on your learning style. Creating on a computer can become a beneficial part of your life and make you more comfortable with ever-changing technology. Give it a shot!
