Mixed Media Stop Animation

Hello, future animators! Do you like animating things? Do you like SEEING animated scenes? Well, this club is definitely made for you! 

Information to know: This group mainly focuses on bringing virtual objects to life on screen. An example of this could be; imagining a ball, bouncing up and down. Next, you would draw the ball on different pages in sequence. Finally, it will appear as an animation.

Days and times: Tuesday, from 3:00 to 4:00 PM

Advisor: Dana Baxter
