Adventures in Animation
Imagine. Create. Animate.
Discover how animators at Pixar™, Cartoon Network™ and Disney™ produce animated cartoons and movies. Create drawings and bring them to life, using production techniques such as timelines and keyframes in Toon Boom Harmony™- the same software used to create Spongebob and many more popular cartoons. Work as part of a team and make friends who share your interests as you explore other animation techniques like claymation and “humanimation”. At the end of the week, you take home a stop-motion-animated short film to share with family and friends. Find this camp near you >>
