Web Animation Workshops has started up again for Spring, we’re headed for San Francisco, Chicago, and Paris this year, some dates still to be announced. Val Head and I team up to bring you two packed days full of content and exercises so that when you leave the class, you not only understand the techniques of how to animate in different tech stacks/environments but why. Here’s is some of the content we cover:
