Teaching Blender in the Classroom
So it looks like beginning in January 2023 I'll be teaching a class at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. I taught 3D animation and game design at The Art Institute of Wisconsin some years ago. But this time I'll be using Blender. I've never been able to do that. At the Art Institute I had to use Autodesk Maya and I never really felt all that much more experienced than the students. Maya is a great program, but it's not Blender.
But now I get to actually teach a class called "3D Modeling and Animation" using Blender! I've had about 18 years of experience using Blender and I've created more than 20 Blender online courses. So I think I finally feel kind of qualified to teach a college level course using Blender. And I'm kind of excited. I know not everyone is as interested or passionate about 3D and Blender as I am, but hopefully I can impart some enthusiasm for the topic.
We'll see how it goes. Wish me luck!
