Learn how to make art move and bring ideas to life in this hands-on stop motion animation camp. We will create characters and environments out of paper, old toys, clay, and paint. We will then create short video narratives using stop motion animation.

As explained on Wikipedia: “Stop motion is an animation technique that physically manipulates an object that appears to move on its own. The object is moved in small increments between individually photographed frames, creating the illusion of movement when the series of frames is played as a continuous sequence. Dolls with movable joints or clay figures are often used in stop motion for their ease of repositioning. Stop motion animation using plasticine is called clay animation or “clay-mation”. Not all stop motion requires figures or models; many stop motion films can involve using humans, household appliances and other things for comedic effect. Stop motion using objects is sometimes referred to as object animation.”

This team building camp allows kids time to design on their own or in small teams.  The creative process can be a wonderful experience for children especially when they walk away with final products from their hard work.

Students are asked to bring their own smart-phone, iPad, or laptop.
