4 lessons//4 Weeks
 Week 1
Lesson 1
Setting up the animation workspace and animation basics.
Students will gather supplies and set up an animation workspace complete with a phone or tablet stand, set, and lighting. They will then learn how to use the Stop Motion Studio app fundamentals, and then will apply their knowledge to an experimental animation.
 Week 2
Lesson 2
Animation basics: Learning 6 animation principles.
Using their animation workstation students will learn about and explore animating 6 animation principles. These principles are Timing and Spacing, Slow in and Slow out, Arcs, Anticipation, Follow Through and Overlapping Action, and Exaggeration. Each hands-on experiential lesson builds upon the previous lesson. Then they can create an animation where they combine as many concepts as they can that is playful and unstructured.
 Week 3
Lesson 3
Animation body mechanics:
Students will now study body mechanics (walk, run, jump, breakdance, parkour, gymnastics, and more) as well as special effects. They can choose mini figures or other types of characters. There are a large variety of videos to learn from. They will have the option to create a short animation combining what they have learned.

Lesson 4
Acting, Storyboarding, and finishing your animation:
In this final session students will learn about pantomime acting, acting to match dialogue, lip sync, facial expression changes, and how to add sound effects and voices. They will also have the chance to create a storyboard, a set, and animate a final short animation.
Develop a love for the art of animation.
Build confidence through daily animation practice.
Bring an idea to life through the discipline and practice of animation.
Create unique animations that are high quality and clear.
I have been teaching art (animation, illustration, sculpture, painting, and digital art) to elementary and teenage students consistently for over 25 years.  My teaching includes 4 years as a public school teacher, 15 years as the owner of the Creative Art Network (after-school, during school, and summer programs) and 12 years as an artist in residence (mural painting focus).   I've also been designing elaborate video tutorials since 2008 for a large variety of mediums.
