Stop Motion Animation Workshop with Hal Meeks • 3/17/12 10 a.m.–4:00 p.m.

Grades 6–8

Stop Motion Animation is a one-day hands-on workshop for middle school students to explore the world of animation. Students will work with a variety of materials to put together a short stop motion animation. Along the way, they will learn to tell visual stories and make movies. We will bring objects and drawings to life!

The Stop Motion Animation Workshop is designed to teach visual storytelling skills, while encouraging focus and spontaneous creativity. Most of all, it will be fun, promoting exploration and making. This method lends itself well as an introduction to motion and film production because the tools are commonplace and for the most part, easy to learn. It has tactile, kinetic and creative storytelling aspects that can be applied to other disciplines . This workshop is open to middle school students of all skill levels.

Open to grades 6–8. 

Limited space is available.
