Technology meets art in this introduction to animation class. As a foundation, students will learn about the history of animation by exploring zoetropes, thaumatropes, flipbooks and so many other intriguing early forms of animation. Students will use a variety of mediums, from paper to Legos to Model Magic clay, to practice the art of stop motion animation. Students will learn how to storyboard, write a script, film, and edit their own stop motion animation films. In addition, students can add in sound by recording their own voices or collaborating with others to bring their story to life. This class will spark the imagination and creativity that students can use to continue to tell their own stories beyond the walls of a classroom!
