Feb. Break Art Camp (ages 10-13)

Stop Motion Animation

This week long full day camp will build confidence and new skills for children ages 10-13. The purpose of this camp is to teach students how to make high-quality stop-motion animations using found and recycled materials and inexpensive technology and equipment. Throughout the week, students will learn the basics of story-boarding, how to build fully pose-able puppet armatures and miniature sets, and techniques for creating fluid and engaging stop-motion animations complete with music and sound effects. On the afternoon of the final day, parents and friends are invited to a viewing of the students’ digital shorts, and each participant will receive their completed film to take home on a USB.

Check out the projects from last year's camp.
