Come to Squeaky Wheel for a special animation workshop with visiting artist Miranda Javid! Based on the artists own way of working using translucent paper, participants will learn how they can quickly and intuitively create their own animations with a smartphone, a free app, some tracing paper, and drawing materials. This workshop is intended for participants 16 and up, and is open to all experience levels.
Participants can bring their own smartphones or request an iPad from Squeaky Wheel. You can download the Stopmotion app to be utilized in the class here.
