Stop Animation! (3rd/4th graders)

We need drawers! We need designers! We need builders! We need animators! Many talented artists needed to synch your voice to animation, create characters, build scenery, and animate! You will take these new skills to bring your imagination to life. Students will be working together in teams to practice animation techniques such as lip-synch, pixilation, and loops. Bring a USB to class to take your animations home!
