2nd-graders try their hand at stop-motion animation

Keriann Armusewicz, Visual Art Teacher

2nd-graders recently visited the Children's Creativity Museum in San Francisco for a 2-dimensional felt animation workshop. Students reviewed the “three Ps” of effective storytelling: person, place, and problem. Students then collaborated in small groups with pre-cut felt shapes to create their own videos using the three Ps while receiving an introduction to the basic principles of stop-motion animation: use a stationary camera, make small changes, and take lots of pictures. We hope you enjoy their videos!
