Animate Workshops in LA?

Hey guys, just wondering if anyone knows about any workshops for animate in Los Angeles? I cross graded from Studio a few days ago (without even really learning studio as much as i should have first) and am very excited to get going with started. But would also like to shave down my learning curve.

Any help would be great. I’m a comic and looking to do some Arj and Poopy (arjandpoopy.com) type things. Though I have no illusions of getting to Bernard Derriman’s level for a long time!

Here’s a clip of something I did last year. I realize it’s only talking heads and it’s all very amateur, but that’s why I’m posting this request! Here’s a teaser, John McCain eats a baby.
