Clay Animation Summer Camp For Kids
This camp will provide the
opportunity for youth to explore animation, sculpting,
visual literacy, and multimedia concepts while working in
small, collaborative teams of kids their own age led by a
teacher who will guide their exploration and discovery. Each
team will brainstorm an idea, create a storyboard and
script, sculpt clay puppets, build scenery, and design
special effects while shooting and editing a stop-motion
animation movie. The week will end with an Animation Theater
where students will share what they’ve learned and their
final Clay Animated Movies will be debuted!
All sculpting equipment, art
supplies, digital cameras, and computer technology will be
provided by ESSDACK. Each
student will sculpt their own clay puppet and work
in a team to create an original clay animated movie.
