DIGITAL ART & ANIMATION
Entering grades four and five – Learn to use DrawPlus X5 and other computer drawing, cartooning and animation programs to create digital works of art and short animations. We'll turn original drawings into animations following a step-by-step process: creation, refining images, adding backgrounds and exporting files as Adobe Flash animations. We'll look at animation techniques and history, and learn to do concept mapping, storyboards and more. Students will develop important art and problem-solving skills while learning how to think creatively and reason systematically. Participants should bring a USB Flash drive for saving work. Cost includes materials and classroom use of laptop computers.
