In a world where animated movies and YouTube Shorts captivate the imaginations of children everywhere, dreams of becoming an animator are booming. If your child is one of those inspired by the magic of animation, Macaroni KID Monroe-West Monroe is here to help turn that dream into reality. We are thrilled to introduce you to an exceptional, free program: Pixar in a Box, brought to you by Khan Academy.

Khan Academy is renowned for helping learners of all ages achieve academic success through its extensive library of educational resources. Now, they've partnered with Pixar to offer a unique and comprehensive program that dives into the art of storytelling, character development, world-building, and animation. Pixar in a Box is designed to break down the complex process of animation into engaging and manageable lessons, perfect for beginning animators. With the help of actual Pixar professionals guiding the way through wonderful videos, your child will feel like they are part of the Pixar team.


While Pixar in a Box is a fantastic resource for all ages, younger children may need some adult assistance to navigate the material effectively. The program allows you to work at your own pace, making it ideal for family learning or independent study for teens. To get the most out of the program, we recommend setting up a free Khan Academy account, which will help save your child's progress and achievements as they complete the 16 Units and 69 Skills offered. As a special bonus, we've included a free downloadable practice storyboard sheet to get your child started on their first animated project. Happy animating!
