Begin Your Dream and Become a 3D Character Animator

Get your feet wet by learning animation basics in Autodesk Maya®, the most popular 3D animation software in the industry. We built our Maya Workshop for beginners so you can learn what you need to start your journey to becoming a successful character animator.

Interact with Maya from Day One

On day one, our instructors will take you through a step-by-step walkthrough of the interface. You'll also get weekly, one-hour Maya demos so you can continue to expand your understanding of how to navigate and animate within Maya.

Start Animating

Use our Stewart and Squirrels rigs and start animating with 5 step-by-step exercises that allow you to get the most out of this workshop.

Instructors Guide You to Succeed

Maya can be an intimidating interface. Our mentors are experts and will help you become comfortable with the Maya interface in 6 weekly, Live Q&As. They want to ensure that when you choose to start Animation Basics, all you have to do is focus on animating instead of struggling with the software.

It’s Not About the Grades

The Maya Workshop is not graded so that you are comfortable with learning the software at your own pace.

Have Fun!

Once you create your first animation, pat yourself on the back—we knew you could do it. And remember to have fun!

What Students are Saying

Squirrels Tree House

This workshop was a fantastic way to get a handle on the basics of Maya animation. I finished this workshop feeling far more confident in my abilities to animate in Maya. My mentor was extremely adept and efficient in teaching us the fundamentals. He was extremely generous in helping us work through concepts we were having a hard time grasping in the live sessions - in which his insight, and the way he clearly explained complex principles, was invaluable.

I liked everything about this workshop. The videos were definitely helpful. The Q&A's were also especially helpful. What I really like is the community and being able to comment on each other's posts.
