The instructor will be using our Studio Projector so students can follow step by step to learn editing and drawing steps for some of the programs. Stop motion projects will be in groups as well as individually.
Stop motion is hands on and will also involve set making, props in miniature, painting and clay work. Students will create an individual and group set. Individual sets and personal characters will belong to the student upon claymation portions of the course ending.
At the end of this course, students will be ready to take on individual projects, be more confident in their skills and how to use the programs as well as being able to take commissions from people with contracts.
We will be talking to students about showing their art via platforms like YouTube, Facebook, TikTok, and social apps where art and comics are shared. If you do not want them creating a social media presence for this purpose, be sure to list this in the forms online at checkout.
