Event Details

Do you have a flair for the creative? Are you interested in learning more about 3D animation?

Bookmans Phoenix, Mesa and Flagstaff are partnering with RJ Animation to bring you exactly that! Students in grades 6-12 are invited to enter our Student Art Contest! One winner from each Bookmans store will receive a paid scholarship to attend a virtual animation workshop with RJ Animation.

All virtual workshops are a four-week program meeting for one hour, twice per week. Software is provided for students to learn the fundamentals of 3D animation, 3D modeling, basic digital painting, and more. Workshops are limited to not more than 15 students, so each learner receives individual attention from an experienced instructor. Students can choose between six workshop topics over the fall schedule.

What could be more exciting than that? When you complete your workshop, your Bookmans location will display your final project either in-store or via our social media channels!

How do you win a scholarship to RJ Animation?
