Animation Fundamentals for Book Artists
July 15 - July 16
July 15-16, Saturday-Sunday, 10am-4pm
Have you been curious about how to incorporate animation techniques into your work as a book artist? This class will introduce the principals of animation and explore the technical aspects of getting from paper prints to video. Through a series of hands-on exercises, students will learn the basic principals of animation by making early animation toys, including a thaumatrope, zoetrope and flip book. Instructor will demonstrate how to translate these principals to the printing press for future projects. Students will create animated GIFs of the work that they create in class to use on websites or post on social media. No previous experience necessary.
