Animation Camp: a camp for girls & boys ages 11-16 interested in animation. 

Animation I: Animation I focuses on 2D, hand-drawn animation. It covers the basics of what animation is and a variety of techniques for creating it. Over the course of a week, campers work on a number of animation exercises as well as a *short* cumulative project. In addition to practicing the fundamentals, there is time dedicated to experimentation and exploring other forms of animation.

Animation II: Animation II is a continuation of Animation I and those looking to join need to take the first or be able to demonstrate a level of knowledge of basic animation concepts and techniques. The week long camp continues practicing hand drawn animation but also focuses on taking work to the computer for compiling frames, backgrounds, and other elements.
