Middle School Animation Camp, June 10-14

Middle School Animation Camp, June 10-14


So you want to be an animator? Using pencils and paper, you will be introduced to the art of animation and learn how to create the illusion of life. In this week long summer camp, you will create your very own animated stories using traditional, hand-drawn animation. You’ll use the same techniques used by animators worldwide. We’ll be creating animation using tools such as the thaumatrope, zoetrope, flipbook and lightbox with pegbar. In this introductory class, you will be guided through the animation process in a simple, step-by-step fashion, bringing your stories to life!

Middle school students, ages 12-14.


The focus of the camp will be on the heart of animation - storytelling. The drawings will be kept simple so you can concentrate on the principles of animation - no need to worry about your level of draftsmanship. By the end of the camp, you will have created several small movies that you can proudly show to your family and friends.


Week-long, half-day workshops, starting June 10th, from 1:00-4:00


The camp will be held at Lasso the Moon Studios, located on Raymond Diehl Road across from Outback Steakhouse.


All animation supplies will be provided. This course is designed to be an entry-point to animation so no previous experience is necessary – just a passion for the art of animation and a willingness to step into the role of animator.
