Animation Afternoon

1p-4p: 13yrs and up (multi-gen)

Johnny Carson Center for Emerging Media Arts
1300 Q St - Lincoln, NE 68508

Enjoy an afternoon making animation!

 

In this creative class, we will begin by reviewing concepts and methods of animation. Our goal is to think about movement at a frame-by-frame level, and try out different technical processes. Students can then explore a variety of animation techniques in an open studio format including stop motion, optical toys, digital 2d, hand drawn animation as well as project development. Students in this class can work in groups or solo depending on each idea and its needs.

 

Have a project you want to develop? Bring it! Want a project to learn or flesh out your skills? We got you. This is a great way to build a portfolio piece or try out a technique you’ve always wanted and alongside others who share your interests in animation and media arts!

 

During our open studio time, we will screen fun animation to inspire you and offer fresh ideas of how you can express yourself through animation. Plus, our director and her assistant(s) are on hand to give demos along the way and assist and support you.

 

Returning and new students welcome! New students will get basic training on our equipment before turning it loose.
