Your journey to mastering the GreenSock Animation Platform starts here

More than just a Getting Started tutorial

Hands-on training and in-depth videos to build confidence and competence

There are tons of tutorials and blog posts out there that explain how to make something move or spin with GSAP.

It's not brain surgery.

The GreenSock documentation is also loaded with detailed definitions of specific features.

However, beginners are often left not knowing how to put it all together.

This training shows you not only what GSAP does but how to actually use it in real projects.

My training removes the confusion and guides you through a series of focused, hands-on lessons that show you how to solve real world animation challenges.

Carl Schooff

I spent nearly 7 years as Geek Ambassador at GreenSock creating their official training materials, youtube videos, and interactive demos that are all over

Having spent years in their support forums ammassing over 9,000 posts I have quite a bit of experience teaching people how to animate with code and avoid common beginner mistakes.

With that position behind me and a totally new API introduced with GSAP 3, I knew I would still need a place to share all that excites me about scripted animation. That’s why I created the Creative Coding Club, it provides a way for me to reach and teach the most people at a price anyone can afford.

Student Reviews

Absolutely fantastic
Brilliant course.

Extremely well explained very easy to understand. One of the best investments I have made, it eliminates the need for so many other plugins and software you literally have everything you need with gsap
Adam Wright
Awesome Course
The introduction was very straightforward and at a very pleasant pace. Carl's teaching method developed a good understanding, particularly the visualizer he used to describe the timeline. Carl also shared tips that may not be noticed by a less experienced tutor. Fantastic!

Practical, clear, outstanding GSAP course!
Carl is not only an expert with GSAP, but he's also an interesting mix of relatable, funny, and professional. The videos are easy to follow and cover the essentials (and then some). We've all seen boring, technical videos stuck in the theoretical, making you feel dumb or utterly bored which is why I appreciate Carl's style so much. He's "one of us", explaining things that actually make sense in the real world.

Watch his courses and you'll be an animation superhero in no time. 

Highly recommended!

Fun and effective introduction to GSAP 3
The course introduces some basic concepts and shows how to animate on the web using GSAP 3. Great CodePen demos accompany the course and offer users the opportunity to practice what they've learnt.

There's a project to complete and some guidance on how to use the awesome docs on the GSAP website. Warmly recommended to beginners of this animation super library.

Carl you are a genuis!
I've been following you from Greensock forums and always thought if you could make some video courses for GSAP and now we have it! I enjoyed every part of it so far and now waiting to dig in for aome advanced topics.

Excellent course
Presentation was very clear and at a pace just nice. Carl’s way of teaching generated good understanding, especially the visualiser he used to describe timeline. Carl also shared tips which a less experienced tutor may not notice. Excellent!

Amazing course
I was an absolute beginner to SVG animation and now feel already confident that I can create cool things from now on.

I wish I had taken this course first!
If you are new to gsap, especially version 3, do yourself a favor and take this course first. It will save you weeks of confusion. The course is cheap also. Like the price of a cup of coffee cheap.

Sample Lecture

My value to beginner's is that I do not rush the basics

This course is specifically designed to guide you through the parts of the GSAP API that you absolutely must understand in order to get started effectively.

The GreenSock Documentation is extremely well written but for beginners it can be hard to decipher which things you really need to know.

Invest a few hours in watching all these videos, experimenting with my demos, and I guarantee it will save you days of headaches and frustration.

Don't just take my word for it, the reviews below are 100% legitimate and unaltered.

See you in the course!
