Summer Animation Workshop

AnimationCommunity Television of Knoxville is pleased to announce our 2016 Summer Animation Workshop. This is an intense week of motion picture making! Participants will learn the basics of stop-motion, cut and paste, hand drawn, claymation and other types of animation. They will complete a series of short animations with the opportunity to storyboard and create their own animated vignette!

Participants must come prepared to work. It should be noted that one second of animation is created using twenty four still images. Animation is extremely time consuming and the very nature of this process involves work. If the student views long periods of time cutting, molding, drawing, and other necessary steps as daunting, this may not be a workshop for them. On the other hand, if the student sees the reward in the final product of this type of creation, then this is a perfect workshop for them!

The 5-day workshop will be offered three times this summer.   Lunch is included.  A $25 Materials Fee must be paid for each participant.  Space is limited to 8 students per session.

June 6-10*   (Grades 6 – 8; *This session is completely FULL.  Please register for another session.)
June 20-24   (Grades 6 – 8; Mon-Fri, 9 am sharp – 3 pm sharp)
