Learn from one of the last remaining Master Animators, Don Bluth! I personally took classes for almost 2 years and it has been a life changing experience. How so, do you ask? Before these classes, I never considered myself an artist, now I do. In fact, I feel as if I have grown so much that sometimes I don’t recognize my own work!

Don Bluth Animation has a low monthly fee, then you get access to many tips, model sheets and a live seminar every Wednesday at 7pm et.

Now we get into the fun stuff,  he also offers online Workshops where he will draw over your drawings and help you complete a scene he assigns. He also has DVD’s available that can help you.

Lastly and most important is his Masterclass he has in Arizona. I attended one of these, and it was a full week of animating with Don Bluth’s personal instruction. You just can’t beat this deal!

Society might be obsessed with cg and computers, but those of you with a love for hand drawn animation and real art, Don Bluth Animation is the place for you! Tell him Lavalle sent ya!

Lavalle Lee has been creating animated cartoons online since 1999/2000 for his website flashcartoons.org. Many cartoons on the site have gained viral video status reaching millions of viewers online. In 2009, Lavalle started learning hand drawn animation from Don Bluth in his animation classes, as well as attending his Masterclasses in Arizona. He has also personally studied animation and visual effects from Veteran Disney animators in Orlando, FL.

Lavalle is widely known in the animation industry as the creator of the TraditionalAnimation.com website. After seeing that most animation sites were about all types of animation, not any specific to classical hand drawn animation, Lavalle knew Traditional Animation needed to be represented online. TraditionalAnimation.com has become the leading website and social media account for all things 2D. The website served as inspiration for “The Traditional Animation Show” in which Lavalle was both producer and host.

His partnership with Don Bluth began when he championed the Dragon's Lair Indiegogo campaign as lead project manager, editor, voice actor and in-betweener. The campaign reached $730,000 dollars to produce a 7-minute pitch video. In 2017, Lavalle brought the idea of creating a school to Don Bluth, and Don Bluth University was born. After a decade of learning from Don Bluth and working together on multiple pitches and business ventures, Lavalle accepted the position as Vice President of Don Bluth's new company Don Bluth Studios.
