Grade Level: 10-12 Animation will focus on giving students the opportunity to develop skill in effectively communicating through the process of animation. The main focus of the class will be in using the 12 principles of animation to produce finished products in a range of possible animation techniques. Some of the possible types of animation could include (but not limited to) stop motion, hand drawn, computer generated, and photographic animation. Students will learn about effective historical and contemporary examples of animation, as well as the discipline’s different career paths. Due to the nature of animation, this class will have a heavy focus on collaboration and various forms of critique.
