Ages 11 - 18: Get an inside glimpse at the rich history and process of animation, as well as first-hand experience using industry standard digital animation techniques and software. During this two-hour introductory session, students will digitally design drawings to bring to life through the twelve principles of animation. Using the open-source program Krita, budding animators will be able to get their hands on competitive tools to create digital art and animation. This software offers a variety of sophisticated tools and options similar to what one might find in Adobe programs such as Photoshop and Flash. Once finished with the session students will be able to continue to use their new knowledge by downloading the free program on their devices at home.
