Youth Workshop: Introduction to Animation
DATES: Tuesdays, August 7, 14, 21; Fridays, August 10, 17, 24; TIME: 1:00PM-4:00PM; SUMMER 2012
Animation is the art of creating the illusion of motion through frame-by-frame manipulation. Join us for a hands-on workshop exploring different techniques of stop motion animation including mixed media, hand drawn, and cut paper. Participants will work in groups and on individual projects inspired by theme. No previous art or computer training is required, just a good imagination and some patience.
INSTRUCTOR: Lowell Boston is an adjunct associate professor of animation at University of the Arts, where he conducts the Senior Animation Workshop and teaches Freshmen Animation and a multi-media class called Time and Motion. His work has been seen on ABC, NBC, ESPN, and PBS. A frequent collaborator of local filmmakers, his independently produced animations include Water’s Light, Chance, Camden, and Late August.
