Autodesk Animation Academy
We can only imagine where the next generation of artists, designers, engineers and inventors will take 3D applications in the future, but we do know the boundaries are blurring between the arts and sciences creating new connections and that students will need the skills to integrate their ideas across various disciplines. Using Autodesk 3D applications gives students the opportunity to explore these connections and learn to see information in a new way.
Autodesk Animation Academy is a flexible curriculum that provides teachers with a sandbox style learning environment to introduce students to the same 3D software tools professionals use in film, games and design visualization. The curriculum is designed for educators who want to make connections between disciplines and facilitate the type of creative thinking that will play a role in the jobs of the future. Autodesk Animation Academy has been created by leading industry professionals and academia in the global arts and animation community and the curriculum prepares students for the skills needed in the 21st century using 3D applications to tell their stories.
