Class Overview

All animation levels are welcome, ages 7 and up. 

Students should arrive fed, prepared to learn, and with a device that contains the Stop Motion Studio app installed and activated (free app is perfectly fine!) 

Learn to bring your LEGO to life with stop motion animation! In the spirit of the summer, this workshop is water-themed. We’ll have lots of fun supplies for creating your own watery scenes- have your minifigs explore the open seas, dive with dolphins, or relax on a desert island! We'll learn techniques like Replacement Animation and Anticipation, and explore Rigging methods to help your characters jump, swim and soar.

Taught by a Portland-based animator, this 1.5 hour class will introduce new students to LEGO stop motion animation and give students with previous animation experience the chance to learn new skills and use our animation supplies to make their LEGO movies.

Students should arrive fed, prepared to learn, and with a device that contains the Stop Motion Studio app installed and all necessary permissions activated (free app is perfectly fine!) You are welcome to bring your own device stand if you like, but it is not required- we can build our own with LEGO!

Students will go home with some supplies, and the inspiration and knowledge to keep animating at home!
