Learn Toon Boom Animation Skills in Days with New Training Courses

Work on your animation abilities while you work from home

Toon Boom Animation has launched a range of training courses enabling artists of all levels to learn or up-skill their abilities in our award-winning 2D animation solutions, Toon Boom Storyboard Pro and Toon Boom Harmony. Enrollees can develop Fundamental, Specialized and Advanced skills in a matter of days, with unique courses available as both remote online live sessions or onsite at studios and educational institutions (once this becomes safe again). Registration is open now, with courses kicking off May 23 — combining advanced tools and best practices to empower artists to work on their animation abilities while they work from home.

“As the animation industry reinvents itself to reflect the needs of the market and the global situation, it is essential for artists to future-proof their skills today to protect their careers tomorrow,” says Marie-Ève Chartrand, Director of Customer Success at Toon Boom Animation. “Whether you are a teacher wanting to bring animation into your classroom or a studio professional ready to take a step up the ladder, our courses will help you achieve your goals in days.”

Designed by Toon Boom experts and delivered by senior solutions specialists, the training courses are built to support endless creativity with best practices, tips and tricks to save time, and knowledge sharing of the latest features to get concrete results. We also offer training made simple for teachers in order to provide everything needed for the school year — getting classrooms up and running in Toon Boom animation software within three to five days.
