Students will learn traditional animation techniques in this workshop.  Working on group projects and individual projects students will learn the basics of hand-drawn animation, stop-motion animation, roto-scoping and time-lapse footage.  Students will have a chance to create a final work of their choice.   Students will develop foundation animation skills and apply those techniques to digital and post-production processes.  This is an exciting workshop where drawings and sculptures come to life and ideas move through the fourth dimension.  Working in a group will support your ideas and get meaningful feedback from your peers to inspire and guide your animation work.
