All of our workshops are very creative with hands-on learning.
Our stop-motion animation workshops are a great way to introduce youth to digital creative tools, exercise their imaginations, and bring storytelling to life. Join us as we build stop-motion animation characters and background sets. Outline your plot, draw your storyboards, and bring your very own movie to life – one frame at a time. You’ll learn how to create an audio track with sound effects, music, and voice-overs. Then you’ll digitally edit your film and screen it at the end of each session.
What Kids Will Learn (See more examples on our YouTube Channel):
Kids will have a lot of fun learning stop-motion animation, using software technology.
Have you ever wanted to see your child’s stories come to life? In our workshops, you will learn how to create a story using stop-motion animation. Similar to a flip book, students take digital pictures and group them together in a time-sequence to produce a motion video. These videos are usually 30 seconds long and can be completed individually or with a group of friends.In our workshops, we use clay, paper, drawings, and building sets (Lego®, K'NEX®, Lincoln Logs®).
We will be running simultaneous workshops for the beginner and for those who have previous experience.
