VizKids: Graphics & Animation
The VizKids™: Graphics & Animation course will provide experience with different forms of animation including hand-drawn, stop-motion, and Flash animation. Students will work individually and as part of small teams to develop expressive character movement. They’ll learn how people and animals move to create action, how postures change to show emotion, and how these qualities can be extended to everyday objects and fanciful creatures. Timing, editing, composition, and storytelling are all part of the animator’s toolkit. Campers are not required to have past experience with technology or art, but will be expected to embrace working with both traditional and computer enabled processes.
VizKids™ is co-hosted by the Department of Visualization (http://www.viz.tamu.edu).
