“As the parent of an aspiring animator, I struggled to find resources for my teen to learn about stop-motion animation. Locally, there was no one in our rural Nebraska town that could instruct him. He was ecstatic to find other like-minded kids as well as to get instruction from industry professionals.
I found the Calibraska teaching artists to be not only highly skilled, of course, but really passionate about working with kids - which takes the learning to a whole other level.
Without Calibraska, I don't think he would have continued his passion and considered it a real career opportunity.”

-Melanie O’Brien
Parent of Calibraska Student - North Platte, Nebraska
