Spring Break: Stop Motion Workshop for Kids

3-hour Stop motion Workshop: The workshop is an introduction to the fundamentals of animation through the use of found objects and paper cut-out technique.

Participants will learn key animation principles as well as tips and tricks of the trade, using simple, free software available on any tablet or smartphone. At the end of the session, each student will have a completed movie of their project to upload to an online file-sharing app.

Suitable for those new to the form as well as experienced young animators. Participants will spend roughly 1.5 hours per session in synchronous, real-time instruction and participation, with roughly 1.5 hours offline to work on their animation. The instructor will be available online for the entire three hours, booking individual “check-ins” to see how the work is progressing and to help with troubleshooting.

She has worked on films with the National Film Board of Canada as well as independent pieces with prominent Canadian directors.
