JFoster Music Studio and Blue Horse Arts Studio are excited to announce a new series Stop Motion Animation courses beginning in November of this year. Stop Motion animation is a technique used in films such as “A Nightmare Before Christmas”, “Corpse Bride”, and “Frankenweenie” by Tim Burton as well as “Chicken Run”, “Wallace and Gromit”, and more recently “ParaNorman.”
The first module will cover the techniques, materials, and concepts behind creating a stop motion animation using found objects. Students will have fun learning how to bring any object to life by photographing a series of small movements of the object to give the illusion of motion and to tell a story that stirs the imagination.
The Stop Motion Short-Course is a series of four, one hour and a half lessons that will be held on Wednesdays from 4:30pm until 6:00pm starting on November 7. The age group for this module ranges 9-13 years of age. Materials will be provided for the course. We are pleased to offer this short-course at an introductory fee of $75 for the 4 lesson module.
