Animation All Stars – Summer Camp – July 30-August 3, 2018
July 30 @ 9:00 am - August 3 @ 4:00 pm EDT$35 – $325
Join Coder Kids Club for a week of animation and more. In Animation All Stars, kids will learn about:
- Animation terminology
- Storyboarding and storytelling
- Character planning and drawing
- Traditional animation
- Stop-motion animation
- Computer-based animation
Even if kids have already taken one of our animation classes before, they will learn something new in this camp, and have an opportunity to take their skills to the next level.
There is no lab fee for this camp, but kids might need to bring some some toys from home, to use in their animations.
This camp is for kids who were in grades K through 8 during the 2017-18 school year. We split kids into groups based on their grade level and experience. If we have room, we can sometimes move kids between groups, but will do so only with instructor approval.
This camp is Monday through Friday, 9am-4pm. Before and after care may be available for an additional cost. Please let us know if you need them when you register.
We are still working out our exact lab schedule, but kids should expect to spend at least half of their time working on their projects. We will also watch animated features and shorts that demonstrate the techniques that we discuss and practice in camp. While this is certainly fun for the kids, we try to have them watch the animations critically, as they start to recognize the techniques. Don’t be surprised if they start to tell you about it next time you take them to see an animated film! There aren’t a lot of take-home crafts for this camp, as the kids spend so much of their time working on their animations.
