Great experience as always! Instructor was excellent. Great demo, and he was great at explaining basics and tips for working with watercolor. I am a beginner with watercolor, tried once before only to get frustrated. But with his class, I felt good and his tips were so important! I feel confident in playing with watercolor more now! Thank you Jon! Love for him to do more – especially 2D style BGs.

The instructor [Melissa Graziano] is fantastic. I’ve taken many classes with her, and she has a natural ability to take very complex systems and teach them in a very clear and well organized way.

Very insightful class on how design drives art in animation. The color theory lessons have dramatically changed how I paint. I understand much more of what I’m seeing now.

George YPhotoshop Advanced Topics

I am so grateful I took this class – even having been in the industry for a few years now and coming into it with my own knowledge and perspective, I still learned a lot! Peter covered so many topics in a very clear, concise and engaging way, coupled with his demonstrations. I also really appreciated the wealth of materials he sent us off with to keep and reference later on our own time – I consider that sort of preparation invaluable!

I had a great learning experience attending the After Effects for Animation class. The instructor was very knowledgeable and was able to switch gears to attend to individual needs without losing sight of the curriculum. The lesson was well thought out and easy to follow. I picked up a number of useful tips. Highly recommended.

This EIDO class contained so much useful information on how to use the program in greater depth! The instructor was friendly but all-pro. Perfect size for a class. LOVED it.

Susan BToon Boom Advanced Storboard Pro Topics

I think the course was great and if I absolutely had to change something, I would try to enhance what was offered, by creating some, possibly just a few more visuals to illustrate the concepts. This way it might create additional lighter moments within the wealth of dense information presented. I do feel the course was wonderful as it was and only wish to convey that maybe could be spaced slightly different with so much covered in two sessions.

John P.Introduction to the Art of Storytelling

I wasn’t sure what to expect, but got so much more out of the course than I could’ve anticipated! Amazing demo, diverse range of topics discussed, strong and relevant examples provided, and a very skilled, personable instructor. It’s incredible how much I learned in just 3 hours online!

A crash course into Unity is perfect. I got a quick intro to basic usage and potential of the software. If you want to get a quick intro to the software this is a great way to spend a few hours.

Ron Lemen’s intro class is a great first step and low-pressure environment to pick up the necessary tools to navigate and model in 3D – he provides two different activities that allow a comprehensive understanding into the basics of modeling and texturing.
