Animation Lab for Kids

Introduce kids to stop-motion animation and animated filmmaking with Animation Lab for Kids and take their art projects to the next level.

Fun, hands-on projects teach a range of animation techniques, including classic zoetrope, flipbook, and cel methods (which don't require any devices or technology) and different methods of shooting. No previous experience is required for either child or adult.

Experimenting with a variety of art materials — drawing tools, clay, and paper cutouts — young animators learn to plan a movie through writing, storyboarding, and creating sets.

Animation Lab for Kids also features helpful sidebars on the history of the early animation techniques as well as the inspiring work of innovative and influential animators.

Authors Laura Bellmont and Emily Brink are co-founders of an arts-education school The Good School, which combines traditional art-making skills with technology. They teach animation techniques at camps, schools, and events, including the New York International Children's Film Festival.
