Is there a class on javascript animations?

I've browsed through the library and used the search feature, but can't seem to find any class on javascript animations. Is there one? I see there's a class on javascript, but I'd specifically like to know how to do minor animations on scroll events. Thanks!

jQuery Basics is probably the closest, since it covers a few different events and jQuery's built in animations, as well as getting you to build a 'simple drawing application' at the end using HTML5's canvas element.

If you haven't done that course or its prerequisites, JavaScript Basics and JavaScript Loops, Arrays and Objects, then I suggest you try those first.

Then there's a couple of Treehouse blog posts about animations:

And lastly, if there's a specific thing you're trying to achieve, feel free to ask on the forums here or search on sites like StackOverflow.

Nice! Thanks. I started to go through JavaScript Basics and discovered it wasn't what I was looking for, but I'll revisit before looking at the JQuery stuff.
