advantages of this workflow, but with no permanent commitments 
necessary!  This artist-friendly, hands-on workshop, designed and taught 
by an artist for artists, brings a sense of play into the learning 
experience. Through this exploration of Houdini’s toolset, you will 
begin to discover the vast creative possibilities accessible for your 
next project.
