What you'll learn in this kids animation class:

This is a foundation class in Stop Motion Animation suitable for beginners ages 9-17 yrs.

Design 3D worlds, lighting theory, matte painting + animation.

Midway we will explore storyboarding + advanced clay character sculpting techniques along with advanced animation movements (composition + camera movement). Moving on to abstract & unconventional animation techniques (using everyday objects, time-lapse drawing, improvisational) + finished animation. 

In the final two weeks we will focus on exercises in recreation of a movie scene in stop motion and devising our final projects. 

Total Beginners are welcome in this class. No experience necessary!

Required materials:

  • Students are required to bring their own iPad or iPhone to class, along with the appropriate USB & charger.

Refund Policy

COURSE CANCELLATION: Although course cancellation is quite rare at our studio, we reserve the right to cancel classes or change instructor assignments. We will make every effort to notify a student in advance of any cancelled class. If enrollment goals are not met, a course may be cancelled up to 48 hours before the first scheduled class. We will notify you to reschedule the class to another upcoming date.

On occasion, a course start-date will be pushed back if enrollment goals are not met. In this instance, you will receive a credit for the price of the class that did not take place.In the event of a total class cancellation due to unforeseen circumstances, and if a student is unable to switch into another class offering, a full refund will be granted. In the event of severe weather conditions, Creatively Wild Art Studio will follow the NYC public school closing, and make-up classes will be at the discretion of the Director.

NO SHOWS: CWAS is not responsible for issuing refunds for any missed classes. If you don't show up for any in-studio scheduled class that you are enrolled in, you are marked as a no show and are not entitled to any credit or rescheduling. If you're looking for a refund or class credit for a full class course PKG, you will need to back out of the class at least 1 full week before it starts. We would need to receive your notification via email (not telephone). We know this seems very strict, but since our spots are limited and teachers are booked in advance it's hard to deal with last-minute bailings. We hope you understand we cannot run our programmed classes according to every student’s individual personal schedule.We offer individual class options for those with tricky schedules. If you cancel your session in time, we can either credit you for the remaining sessions (valid for 6 months from the date of your original enrollment) or refund you minus the admin fee of $75.

ONLINE CLASSES: We require you to register ahead of time for any online class via the Zoom invitation that will be sent to you after your register. If you register and do not join your scheduled online class you will not be credited for the class or have the option to reschedule. We are sorry for this strict and hard rule at this time but in order for us to cover our costs, as we book our teachers in advance and have them in place for the session. Our instructors are professional teaching instructors and we cannot cancel an instructor last minute.

If you register for an online session and notify us at least 48 hours in advance by email with your request to reschedule, we may be able to put you into another upcoming online class that has availability at our discretion. Please note it is not our responsibility to offer you any credit if you cannot attend a rescheduled session.

Question from Kimberley J.
Is this $80 class considered a DROP IN CLASS? Can anything get produced in a drop in class or better yet, can the student finish something in one class. For example, if I were to take a sculpture class and at the end I have a sculpture but the teacher says, "come back next week and learn how to make the sculpture walk in a movie." Then I would feel satisfied with my accomplishment but want to learn more. I just want to know what gets "finished" at the end of a drop in class.
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Kimberley! For DROP-IN students (signing up for a single class), please keep in mind you may need more time to complete a class assignment, then one 2 hour class allows. As art is an expressive medium and we don't recommend rushing a project just to get it finished, it may need more time to evolve so with the nature of all creative exercise- we do not guarantee that you will finish a project in one session. It also depends on the medium, for example, oil painting takes a lot longer than acrylic painting, but also certain subjects might require further investigation. If you have a more serious interest in art or have more set goals of what you are trying to achieve, or if you're trying to build your skills we highly recommend that you to sign up for a FULL session so you can truly benefit from learning the proper skills for your chosen discipline.

Question from cbb b.
Hi, I had a question about this class. I notice there’s a 5-week course or just one. Are the ones on June 10,17,24 etc a series? So if my son likes the first class, do the others build on that? Unfortunately, the classes in July will not work for us so wanted to check about the June classes.
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
During Summer we offer shorter sessions in all our classes, and they are offered in monthly PKGS (June- July-August) Hence there are only 3 sessions left in June. You would need at least a few sessions to learn this media, as we cannot possibly cover all in one drop in class. The first session would be a basic introduction, for more serious students or for students who are interested in learning this skill properly we advise signing up for a full session, that way you can get a handle on designing characters, sequencing, color correction, making titles, etc You are welcome to sign up for the rest of the sessions in June.
