Just thought I'd pass this info along...
San Diego offers a lot of free adult education classes, and among what they teach is Flash MX2004, Illustrator, Photoshop, etc.
Here's the link, you can scroll down to see what they haveSan Diego Continuing Ed.
I took the classes starting in February, and am already getting Flash Animation jobs.
*Note... The class just teaches how to use the program... (ie, no character animation techniques, etc...) but it's a great introduction, and what you do with it is upto you.
Just thought I'd share this. I believe the next classes start soon.
