Animation is the art of giving motion to otherwise still objects. There are many animation techniques, from hand-drawn to computer-based approaches. These techniques use different types of equipment, software, and skill sets. The stop motion technique is one of the simplest animation formats. It’s flexibility lends itself to either very simple or rather elaborate ideas.
This September and October we are offering Stop Motion Saturdays. This hands-on class – for different age groups, including adults – will show you how to create a stop motion animation using paper, a camera, basic animation techniques, and our cool iStopmotion software. Sign up for the class by following the links below:

Later in the year, we’ll be offering a computer animation class. Stay tuned.
