Unlock Your Creative Potential: Explore a Free Online Animation Course
Are you fascinated by the world of animation? Do you have a passion for storytelling and creating visually captivating characters? If so, then it’s time to unlock your creative potential and explore a free online animation course. In today’s digital age, learning animation has never been easier or more accessible. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced artist, these courses offer a wealth of knowledge and resources to help you bring your ideas to life.
Why Choose an Online Animation Course?
With the rise of the internet, online learning has become increasingly popular. The convenience and flexibility it offers make it an ideal choice for those looking to learn new skills or enhance existing ones. When it comes to animation, online courses provide several advantages that traditional classes may not be able to offer.
Firstly, online animation courses allow you to learn at your own pace. This means you can fit your studies around your existing commitments, whether that’s work, family, or other personal pursuits. You have the freedom to choose when and where you want to learn.
Secondly, these courses often provide access to industry professionals who are experts in their field. You’ll have the opportunity to receive guidance and feedback from professionals who have worked on major animated films or television shows. This valuable insight can help refine your skills and take your animations to the next level.
Lastly, online animation courses are often more affordable than traditional classes. With no need for physical classrooms or materials, course providers can pass on these cost savings directly to students. This makes it easier for aspiring animators of all backgrounds and budgets to pursue their passion without breaking the bank.
What Can You Expect from a Free Online Animation Course?
So what exactly can you expect when enrolling in a free online animation course? While each course may vary in its curriculum and approach, there are several key components that most reputable courses will cover.
Firstly, you’ll learn the fundamentals of animation, including principles such as timing, squash and stretch, and anticipation. These principles form the building blocks of animation and will help you create believable and dynamic characters.
Next, you’ll delve into the technical aspects of animation. This may include learning how to use industry-standard software such as Adobe Animate or Autodesk Maya. Through hands-on exercises and project work, you’ll gain practical experience in using these tools to bring your ideas to life on screen.
Furthermore, many courses will also cover storytelling techniques specific to animation. You’ll learn about character development, storyboarding, and creating compelling narratives that engage your audience.
Lastly, some online animation courses may provide opportunities for collaboration with fellow students. This can be invaluable for networking purposes and allows you to receive feedback from peers who share a similar passion for animation.
How to Choose the Right Free Online Animation Course
With so many options available, choosing the right free online animation course can seem overwhelming. However, by considering a few key factors, you can make an informed decision that aligns with your goals and learning style.
Firstly, research the course provider’s reputation. Look for reviews or testimonials from past students to gauge their satisfaction with the course content and teaching methods.
Secondly, consider the curriculum offered by each course. Ensure that it covers the specific areas of animation that interest you most. For example, if you’re interested in 3D character animation, look for courses that focus on this particular aspect.
Additionally, check if the course provides any certifications or recognition upon completion. While not essential for all learners, having a recognized qualification can boost your credibility in the industry if you’re looking to pursue a career in animation.
Lastly, take advantage of any free trial periods or introductory lessons offered by online course providers. This will give you a taste of what to expect before committing fully to a particular course.
Unlocking Your Creative Potential
By exploring a free online animation course, you have the opportunity to unlock your creative potential and embark on an exciting journey into the world of animation. Whether you’re looking to pursue a career in the industry or simply want to express your creativity through animated storytelling, these courses provide a solid foundation and invaluable guidance. So don’t wait any longer – start your animation adventure today.

Iowa Young Writers' Studio
6-Week Online Courses
The Iowa Young Writers' Studio offers 6-week online creative writing courses for high school students twice every year! We offer the online courses for 6 weeks every winter, mid-January through late February, and every summer, late June through early August. We do not offer online courses in the fall. We accept applications in September and October for winter courses and in March and April for summer courses (check this page for updated information). We accept applications from students in the United States and welcome applications from abroad. We accept applications from 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th graders. Students must be able to read and write in English. The online courses run independently of the Summer Residential Program, and though they're intended for students with a passionate interest in writing, admissions decisions for these courses are based less on writing ability than on enthusiasm and commitment to learning.
This winter, 2024, we will offer three 6-week online courses (see descriptions below). These courses will run from January 21st through March 3rd, 2024. All courses will be taught by graduates of the Iowa Writers' Workshop. The online courses will require approximately 3-4 hours of engagement per week, which will include writing assignments, reading assigned materials, critiquing classmates’ writing, and participating in online discussions.
These online courses are asynchronous , meaning that students can complete the assignments and post in the discussion forums on their own schedules in their free time. It is important to note that even though students will be able to do the assignments on their own schedules, at any hour of the day or night, they will have to meet weekly deadlines.
Please note that we do not offer these courses for college credit. Students who complete the course with a passing grade will receive a Letter of Completion from the Iowa Young Writers' Studio. Students will also be able to download a pdf of their final letter grade at the end of the course.
Winter 2024 Online Courses
Sense of Witness: Poetry and Perception . Poetry Writing (accepting applications from September 9th through 11:59 p.m. CST October 31st, 2023)
Instructor: Danielle Wheeler
Sense of Witness: Poetry and Perception is an online poetry writing class for high school students. This course takes inspiration from the poet Muriel Rukeyser, who preferred to call her readers “witnesses” because it was more active: [it] “includes the act of seeing or knowing by experience.” In this six-week course, we’ll be witnesses: to each others writing, to the poems of poets like Rukeyser, Bei Dao, and Audre Lorde, to what is happening around us… and to our inner selves. We’ll ask ourselves: how does one witness the self? How have poets, historically, witnessed themselves and the world in their work? How do we witness what is happening the world? And how does this all influence our writing? Along the way, we’ll experiment with style, form, inspiration, and voice, and you’ll produce work that will be workshopped and considered by your instructor and your classmates. You'll learn basic concepts and techniques of poetic craft and emerge with some fresh writing and some workshopped pieces. No prior poetry writing experience is required, though it certainly can’t hurt. Come with a willingness to read, write, and thoughtfully consider the work of others. (Students will be required to complete weekly assignments and participate regularly in group discussions.)
A Perusable Feast. Creative Writing (accepting applications from September 9th through 11:59 p.m. CST October 31st, 2023)
Instructor: Connor White
A Perusable Feast is an online creative writing class for high school students . A Perusable Feast is a genre-mashing, experimental writing course aimed at helping you ask yourself the questions: What sort of writer am I? What sort of reading inspires me? and, What are my artistic sensibilities, anyway? In it, you will test the boundaries between fiction, poetry, nonfiction, drama, journalism, and various other sorts of creative writing which, taken together, constitute a vast and intricate wonder-scape just waiting to be explored. John Crowley, in his novel Little Big , envisions a series of nested imaginative realms, each bigger than the one that contains it. In exploring the realms of the written word, we will take Crowley's model as our own; the farther in you go, the bigger it gets! We will find out how, by working through the nuts and bolts of specific challenges in various kinds of writing, we can gain access to larger ideas about writing in general, ideas that transcend distinctions of "genre" and allow us to make use of our words as tools for thinking, for seeing the world. We will put these tools to use in short, guided writing exercises, which we will discuss, along with published works by established authors, in a conversational online setting. Think of this course as a six-week literary potluck. You are the cook and the banqueter. On both accounts, welcome, and enjoy! (Students will be required to complete weekly assignments and participate regularly in group discussions.)
Forget Ready, Forget Set, Go! Fiction writing (accepting applications from September 9th through 11:59 p.m. CST October 31st, 2023)
Instructor: Katie Knoll
Forget Ready, Forget Set, Go! is an online fiction writing class for high school students. Over the course of six weeks, you'll learn about key aspects of fiction writing such as detail and image; voice and point of view; character, story, and plot; setting; and drafting and revision. You'll do this through a process of creative collaboration (or perhaps collaborative creativity)—each week, you'll read a short piece by one of your classmates and use it as a springboard for your own writing exercises, while simultaneously using your own writing as a tool for working through and appreciating that of your classmates. You’ll also read and respond to published short stories by exciting contemporary writers. The course takes a playful, generative, process-oriented approach to writing. This means you’ll be doing lots and lots of writing, and that, when you read, you’ll be reading as writers —teasing out what makes great stories work. (Students will be required to complete weekly assignments and participate regularly in group discussions.)
Get Dusty. Fiction Writing (accepting applications from September 9th through 11:59 p.m. CST October 31st, 2023)
Instructor: Anna Polonyi
“It is a good deal easier for most people to state an abstract idea than to describe and thus re-create some object they actually see,” the short story writer Flannery O’Connor once said. “But the world of the fiction writer is full of matter… fiction is about everything human and we are made of dust, and if you scorn getting yourself dusty, then you shouldn’t write fiction.”
This course is about getting dusty. With a global pandemic that has drastically reduced the scope of our physical activities, it's crucial for young writers to hone their most precious tools: the five senses. Hands-on observatories will be a core feature of this class: you’ll do fieldwork exploring each sense, and discuss strategies for how best to render that sense on the page, with examples from successful fiction and playful experiments in your own writing.
We’ll be using sight to discuss character, sound to think about dialogue, smells to look at setting, taste and touch to gain insight into tension and point-of-view. You’ll come out of this course with craft tools to discuss fiction, several pieces of original writing, a daily writing practice to rely on, and a method for giving constructive feedback to your peers.
Ricochet Visions. Speculative Fiction Writing (accepting applications from September 9th through 11:59 p.m. CST October 31st, 2023)
Instructor: Ren Arcamone
In this course, you’ll be writing and exploring unreal worlds. You’ll visit the world of haunted paintings and dystopian summer camps, of sinister bugs and time-bending alien language. You’ll visit the land of the dead and the land of unsociable wizards. With any luck, these worlds will give you a way out of this one, an escape from the tedium of regular life. But escapism isn’t the only promise of speculative fiction; very often, our depictions of unreal worlds are less fabrication than warped mirror. They offer what Ray Bradbury calls “a ricochet vision”: a twisted reflection of our current world that reveals something true.
Over the course of six weeks, you and your peers will explore these fantastical worlds—and you’ll also create your own. Through weekly craft videos and creative writing prompts, you’ll learn the elements of fiction: character and dialogue, plot and point of view, setting and sensory detail. You’ll read short stories that draw from the spectrum of speculative fiction sub-genres: horror and sci-fi, fairytale and fantasy, apocalyptic and paranormal, and everything in between. You’ll also work as a group to create a shared, fantastical world, contributing week-by-week to the geographic and socio-cultural structure of this invented land. Come prepared to collaborate and play. By the end of the course, you'll have a solid understanding of the elements of fiction, and you'll have written your own short story set within this shared world.
If your application is accepted but the section of the course you applied for has filled, you may be offered a section with a different (but equally awesome!) instructor.

Here’s what parents and students around australia are saying about cluey learning:.
Had only just started and already I can see the benefits of 1:1 learning for my child! She looks forward to each session and is positively energised after the lesson.
Given my child more confidence and help on what is needed.
Great teacher. Works well with my shy child. Cluey challenges without dropping their confidence. Would recommend parents to try. Teaching is so hard to do when we learnt many years ago and with different techniques and technology. I feel less stressed my child is getting behind and happy that confidence is increasing.
Confidence growing , tailored to needs and highly recommend
Teaching is spot on and compatible with my sons way of learning. So far the tutoring is relevant to what is being taught at school and curriculum therefore reinforces and revises subject taught
Improved my childs knowledge and confidence
The tutor is very helpful and welcoming. She is helping my daughter build confidence. so far we had 3 lessons and my daughters is really enjoying it and looks forward to the sessions. The tutor is professional and able to include my child into discussion which is really great improvement.
Cluey is building my daughter's confidence
My child has a medical condition and has missed quite a bit of school. By joining Cluey learning he has gained confidence and has been able to fill in the gaps he has missed. He is always very excited to do the lessons and he always reflects back to me what he has learned. His tutor always checks with my son what he has been doing at school so he can extend on this.
Extra boost of confidence
My son is lost in the system. He is that good child that they do not see. We started Cluey a few weeks back. I love the flexibility of doing it in our own home. The maths tutor gets it. He gets my son to work through the problems and figures out where he is making mistakes. They work back through the problem to fix it. My son than works on other similar problems that he does not get. Our tutor works with my son on the deficits in his maths knowledge. Having one on one allows my son to work on his individual needs.
