Clay Animation

Wednesdays, Sep 18 – Nov 6, 2019 4pm – 6pm
Ages 11 – 14

Students love this class because they get to create their own animated video with their classmates! They are in charge of every step. Develop a story, create clay characters, build set design, select music, and learn the basics of video movement in this fun beginner class. Students will have the opportunity to work with a variety of materials as they plan, produce, and assemble their videos. Working in teams of 2-3, students will use a stop motion app on an iPad to record their clay animations. By the end of this course, they will have a video they can be proud to show their friends and family at our film festival, while also building their creative confidence and teamwork skills.
