Adventures in Stop-Motion Animation Workshop

with Hal Meeks and Miles Holst
January 12, 2013 / 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. / $50
Open to grades 6-8

Make a New Year’s Resolution to create your own short animated film! What better way to do that than with Hal and Miles, the dynamic duo of digital animation instruction here at CAM Raleigh? Hal and Miles have taught Animation together at Design Camp for several years and are excited to bring their teachings to our Museum classroom.

In this workshop, students will learn the basics of stop-motion animation by using commonplace materials and inexpensive equipment to produce their own short animated films. If you are interested in how films are made or have ever wanted to make some art that moves, join us to learn how to make your own movies. Get ready for the big screen!
