FX Dojo Blender Intro classes are online! Learn 3D Animation using Blender, the most popular OPEN SOURCE Digital Content Creation tool available today. Our curriculum covers the fundamentals of using Blender. Students stay engaged with creative exercises that promote using technology in a healthy and productive way.
Minimal setup and intuitive UX
FX Dojo online requires less than 5 minutes of preparation. After registration, students will receive clear email instructions on how to proceed using Discord, the popular chatroom app used by gamers worldwide. To participate, students will need:
- Computer, PC or Mac (unfortunately iPads and other tablets won't work for this class)
- 3-button mouse is highly recommended (but touchpad will work)
- Reliable Internet connection
- Blender version 3.1 (free download)
- Discord (free download)
- A Discord account (free)
Exchange ideas with other students and instructors
Learning online doesn't have to be an isolating experience. FX Dojo online is a LIVE learning environment promoting collaboration and interaction among students. Most questions and comments are addressed through typing in the text messaging within Discord, however students may also speak through a microphone if they have one.
Use this class as a JUMPSTART
There are so many Blender tutorials on the internet! But it’s much easier to take advantage of them if you have a strong foundation. 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 (fix the snowman!)
Computer Generated Art is about more than just clicking buttons, it’s about how to overcome barriers. Once you can solve basic digital problems, facing an intermediate one isn’t so scary. FX Dojo prepares students by dropping them in the middle of 3D art projects of varying difficulty.
Virtual Learning promotes a healthy digital lifestyle
Exercising creativity during Online Summer Camp shows students that remote learning can be fun and effective. FX Dojo is committed to adapting and evolving Digital Art Education with state-of-the-art technology. Please join us for these innovative online experiences!
