Teaching “Flash Intro” to beginning animators for 10 years I have developed some techniques and projects that develop essential Flash skills while providing a solid foundation for participants to continue working with Flash long after my class or professional development. The typical introductory training is anywhere between 6 to15 hours and my typical teaching assignment, with middle school students, is twice a week for 40 minutes for an academic year.

Follow the sequnce of video tutorials, lesson plans and samples below for a solid Flash foundation.
