Small Classroom



Stop motion dates back more than 125 years. A lot has changed in that time, but what remains the same is that animators move a character or object one frame at a time to make a scene. That’s exactly what you'll be doing in this camp. You'll take handmade characters and other everyday objects to make an entertaining scene and put it all together with the help of modern technology that happens to be in everyone’s pockets  their phones.

Here's what you'll learn and do: 

  • Break down what stop motion is and its history
  • Come up with our “big idea”
  • Learn the tools you'll use (phone apps, etc.)
  • Light
  • Shoot
  • Edit (video and audio)
  • Present


  • For students ages 10-16.
  • Skill Level: Beginner
  • You must bring a camera phone or tablet with video capabilities.
  • Bring water and a snack.
  • Registration closes Monday, July 29.
  • A materials fee of $25 is included in the price of the class and covers all materials needed. See below for what students need to bring.

You'll make a video of two or fewer minutes using a theme of your own, or one chosen by the class.
