July 17 – 21
1 pm – 5 pm
PAM CUT – 934 SW Salmon St.
Ages 8-11

Instructor: Emma Rae Prochaska
Cost: $450

This 5-day camp is designed for children ages 8-11 who are interested in learning the basics of stop motion animation. The campers will spend each day learning and practicing the different techniques used in stop motion animation, including planning and storyboarding, creating characters and sets, and using iPads to record and animate their creations.

Throughout the camp, campers will develop their creativity, problem-solving skills, and teamwork. They will be encouraged to be imaginative and to explore different animation techniques and materials, such as clay, felt, traditional stop motion armatures, and even their own toys from home. They will be given guidance and support but also given the freedom to be creative with their own ideas.
