SUMMER CAMP: Stop-Motion & 2D Animation (ages 8-10)

SUMMER CAMP: Stop-Motion & 2D Animation (ages 8-10)


Cartoons just aren't for watching anymore - we teach you how to create them!

From your favorite characters to your own magical creations! In this camp, students will create their own animated worlds using a variety of techniques within stop-motion claymation, traditional paper animation and 2D digital animation. Campers will use professional software + tools such as: wacom tablets, Hue and DSLR cameras, light boards, paint and creative software such as Adobe Photoshop & Adobe Animate.

Campers will gain a fundamental understanding of the creative software and digital tools used to create professional animations, learning through hands-on instruction while actively creating! All campers will leave camp with a reel of their animations easily shareable with family and friends!

All films & creative projects completed in ASoF camps will screen for the public as part of our annual Loud & Clear Youth Film Festival at Alamo Drafthouse in August 2019. All camps are a flat fee of $275 with no additional costs and include a free summer camp t-shirt for each camper registered.

This camp has two sessions offered; students may sign up for both sessions if they’d like:

  • June 3 - June 14, 2019 from 10:00am - 1:00pm (Monday - Friday)

  • June 3 - June 14, 2019 from 2:00pm - 5:00pm (Monday - Friday)

Pair this camp with another session (morning or afternoon) for students to experience a full day of camp such as: Movie Making, Photography, Music Video, or After Effects.
