Recreating Animation History through Experimental Machines

Dates: July 31-Aug 4, 12:30-4
Age group: Rising 7-9 graders
Cost: $250


This exciting new course will study the early history of animation and make working machines that trace the unique hands-on progress of early animators. We will storyboard, draw, paint, and then move on to making thaumatropes, phenakitoscopes, zoetropes, and flipbooks. These will be geared, motorized, and battery-operated to work autonomously.
