Kids, Learn How to Make an Animated Movie!

Kids will make their own animated movie at the Weston Art Gallery’s popular annual Children’s Animation Workshop on Saturday, Nov. 8, from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.  
 
It sells out early every year, if you’re interested – register now!
 
J. Russell Johnson, Wright State University’s professor of motion pictures, leads the workshop with Ruben Moreno, art educator and clay animation specialist.
 
Kids will learn the basic premise of animation, the foundation of all motion pictures, and practice techniques to create a short film.
 
Participants will:
 
• Sketch and color their own flipbook then turn their flipbook into a movie;
 
• Create and animate Claymation figures with sound;
 
• Watch their movie set to music on the big screen with their friends and family (date TBD);
 
• See their name in lights!
 
Workshop fee ($5) includes supplies plus a free DVD and film screening (with popcorn!) next spring (for children ages 5-12 and adults). 
 
Cost: $5 per child. Advance registration (strongly) suggested; Register at www.westonartgallery.com/learn.
