I could start with a snark about the economy and desperate educational institutions but I’ll pass. Mount Sierra College here in Monrovia turns out some pretty incredible graphic arts and animation artists and they are offering up free classes as a sampler for those interested on May 30 from noon to 4PM. The free classes being offered include animation, flash web design, resume building, hacking that tie in with the Bachelor degrees they offer in Media Arts and Information Technology.
The snazzy postcard they sent me can be embiggened from the thumbnail. Registration is required and you can do it here now.
