Introducing Maya Animation for Teens
"Teens will get their first experience working with Maya", says Nat Hunter, Principal at Sixit and former Disney modeler and animator. Maya is a 3D modeling program by Autodesk and is widely used by film and game companies in the Bay Area. Usually taught to college students, these Maya courses are geared toward the capabilities and levels of middle and high school students. "I hope this class will open opportunities for some kids to enter interesting internships next summer", says Nat Hunter.

Hey Marin Parents! Enroll your kids today in our computer animation classes.
Created by the folks at MIT, the Scratch program is designed to engage kids artistically and logically as they learn to create animations to show their friends and families. Kids can bring a portable flash drive to class so that they can take home both the Scratch program as well as their amazing masterpieces.
On the first day of Computer Animation, kids learn how to build an animation with their own graphics and sounds in a fun and supportive environment. On the next day, kids build on skills they developed the week before and can take their projects to the next level or start another animation and receive oversight and support.
Each day students will be able to share their projects with others on the MIT website.
