Mini Courses

This summer we will be offering:

Stop Motion Animation

July 30- Aug 3, 2018
9:30am - 2:00pm
Ages 8 to 12

Students will create a 2 to 3 minute "Invention and Discovery" film using LEGO® bricks and minifigures. Students will work in groups of 3 to 4 depending on class size to create a short stop motion animation film. Groups begin by storyboarding and writing their story on the first day while we discuss the process and expectations. Day two is dedicated primarily to finalizing the story and set design. The final 3 days are for filming and editing. Each student will get to sit as the director, computer operator and movement coordinator.

The cost is $275 per child ($250 for SEE members)
Each session is limited to 12 participants.
