Introduction to Animation

  • 480-B Broadway Saratoga Springs, NY, 12866 United States (map)

This Spring Break Animation 5-day Workshop, led by Shawn Atkins, is for children ages 7-12 years old and teaches the history and fundamentals of Animation. We will learn how to make images move, first by recreating early 19th century optical toys like the Zoetrope and Phenakistoscope. We will then make a flipbook. During the last two days of the workshop, participants will make themselves into a photocutout character and animate themselves within a background they have drawn. No animation experience necessary! $75 per child; Register here.
