VSB Springbreak Workshop FILLED UP

We had a great workshop at Kits Secondary over springbreak – a a 4 day, 2:15 hr intensive with  We had 21 kids making whatever they wanted:  some interior design, some buildings, the deathstar, and of course characters!

Super fun!  Super Creative Learning!~


We put Blender, as it’s non-install runnable on anything, on USB sticks – kids saved their work and took it home to revolutionize the 3D Industry 🙂

Greendale’s 3D Animation (2012 Team Project)

Here it is folks!  Our learners over at Greendale Elementary had another workshop with YCM.  This time, since the group had previous experience, we planned and created an animation that had a little something for everyone… robots…. horses…. spaceships etc hahaha!

Without further ado, please enjoy!

Great work guys!

3D animation lessons for kids
(Jayden’s cityscape – August 2011)

5 sessions:

  1. Introduction, UI (user interface) = snowman assignment, nav
  2. Modeling, (making things in 3D) = spaceships, characters, etc
  3. Materials, Lights, Shadows (rendering)
  4. Animation I = project work
  5. Animation II = project work cont’

As you’ll see by our student work, we cover the basics and build upon our unique interests as the course ensues.  This allows for return students who wish to further their creative work.  Additionally, since we use Blender 3D, an open-source 3D animation software package, learners will be able to continue their exploration and studies at home for years to come! See you there!

Reserve your seat today! Payment in full is required, you may do so cash, cheque or credit/paypal:
