About Us

The Good School is a mobile arts education school that cultivates commercial and traditional art making skills and technological understanding via stop motion animation filmmaking.

Our classes range from customized stop motion animation workshops to New Method Master Classes taught by working artist professionals. Integrating drawing, painting, sculpting, and design with technology, students learn by doing in a collaborative environment. TGS brings all necessary equipment and supplies to each lesson, enabling us to accomplish any project within varied spaces and flexible time frames.

The Good School believes in a wholistic art making experience that utilizes the cooperative process of stop motion animation film making. This allows participants of all ages to experience the roles of artist, teacher and professional. We are so excited to work with you!
