Starts July 25
Monday–Friday, July 25–29, 12–4 pm
What fun it is to make inanimate objects come to life and craft a world of your own! Come learn the basics of stop-motion clay animation with resources at your fingertips. Experiment with set, prop, and character designs, armature building, movement, sound, and editing in this weeklong camp. Working in small groups, you’ll turn ideas into stories and stories into fun, short animations. A magical world is waiting to be created with your exciting imagination!
