Media Education


Teacher Registration Open for Behind The Animation Presentations

Welcome back to school, teachers! We are now scheduling classroom (and assembly) visits for our Behind The Animation program, where a professional animator takes 3rd–12th-grade students on a journey of storytelling by going in-depth and behind the scenes of an animated film. And for the teacher in you... it's standards-linked digital media arts integration!

Check out our pre-event materials here and click the button below to register for a presentation at your school.
