AnimSchool is the premiere online school for learning 3D animation, modeling and rigging.

AnimSchool is the premiere online school for learning 3D animation, modeling and rigging. We teach a broad curriculum so students are well prepared for the 3D workforce.

AnimSchool 30 instructors currently working at top studios like Blue Sky Studios, Dreamworks, Disney, Sony, and Pixar. We share our passion with aspiring artists after our full-time production jobs.

AnimSchool is a growing school! We have 8 staff members, including two full-time 3D animation professionals.

AnimSchool students have almost continuous interaction, help, and problem solving with our full-time pros! We work hard to respond to student issues quickly -- often very fast on our student Facebook group.

AnimSchool is home to over 250 students in our two programs, where the students learn 3D animation, modeling, and rigging. They interact frequently in classes, extra sessions, a free drawing class with industry pros, a student web hangout, a very active student Facebook page, forums, and messaging. Our students are excited about learning these 3D skills, so they approach each of their assignments with passion.

AnimSchool was founded in 2010 by David Gallagher, animator, rigger, and former Character Development Supervisor at Blue Sky Studios.

AnimSchool students learn to specialize in a particular field, while also learning supporting skills so students are well prepared for the 3D workforce.

We love Characters!

AnimSchool provides the most appealing characters for animation students to use. AnimSchool characters are known around the world as the best in the industry. We share some of our characters with the public.

Our Malcolm rig has been downloaded by over 50,000 users worldwide and used in many student films, commercials, and animation contests. AnimSchool is where people go for great characters!

And we teach the very best modeling and rigging practices to make the characters you create the most aesthetic and production-ready.
