Course Information


Students can let their creativity loose with this course as they learn how to use new software and tools to bring their stories to life, and test their artistic skills in the classroom.

This course explores stop motion animation and hand-drawn animation, where students sketch every frame of their clips. These techniques are used today in professional industries, and are essential animation skills to know.

Recording stick-bots with the Stop Motion Studio app and utilizing powerful software like Adobe Animate CC are some of the animation methods students discover, while developing their computer and artistic skills throughout.


9am – 2pm
