Animation

Discover the world of animation. Experiment with simple animation techniques, make a flip book and a zoetrope. We will initially look at the work of the New York artist Keith Haring as a model for a flip book creating a simple cartoon character using black, white and one other colour.
A Zoetrope is a simple spinning device that you can use to view a cartoon strip and bring it into life. You will have templates to construct this but can add as many cartoon strips as you like.
If time allows experiment with Claymation using plasticine to construct models and tell a story. Download an app to your iPad and take your animation to new heights.
