Looking to Teach Blender in the Classroom?

Coming soon! A 20+ page guide to teaching Blender in a group setting

Coming soon: Teach Blender Guide Book

So either you’re a Blender fanatic that has been given the green light to start your Blender class at school, work, or you drew the short straw and have to teach it next week with no idea what you’re doing. :) 

Don’t worry, either way, this guide is here to help you become familiar with the Blender, its community and tips for teaching it to large groups. 

We’ll be taking a 30,000ft view to give you foundations to craft your class, or simply gain a better understanding of Blender for yourself. 

Learning 3D can be incredibly overwhelming, yet highly rewarding for those that stick with it. As with anything, it’s a skill that can be learned through repetition, taking things slow and managing expectations. 

If you're interested in being notified when it's released, please drop in your email address below!

The Expected Release is the end of April 2022. 

Yes, Notify me when the guide is ready.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this guide going to teach me Blender?

No, though is to be the map to help you find your way. There are thousands of places online to learn Blender, including here at CG Cookie. The goal of this guide is to have you become familiar with the Blender community, and how to prepare to teach Blender in the classroom.

When will it be released?

I'm currently aiming to have this guide completed by the end of April.
