Intro. To 2D

Thursday Evenings 6:30pm - 9:30pm

Intro to 2D gives you an inside look at how classical animation is produced, guiding students through the stages of development and production. The Course outlines early animation devices, film and digital technology as well as introductions to a variety of techniques.

You will make a variety of animation toys, a flipbook, a morph, a bouncing ball and walk cycle to add to your portfolio.

Stop Motion Puppet Construction Using Molding and Casting
Two Week Course
Instructor: Mark Werklund
Dates: November 12 & 18th (7-9PM)13th (12-5PM), 20-21st (10-4PM)
Fee: $120 QAS Members ($150 non-members) + Additional Supplies

Mold making can seem like an alchemist’s game with its variety of materials to choose from and chemical compatibility issues between the mold and casting material. This course is designed for novice and intermediate mold-makers looking to produce a working stop motion puppet. Molding and casting with flexible silicone offers two key benefits when creating puppets: Professional looking results and the ability to make exact, multiple copies.

In this course you’ll create a simple and durable wire armature, sculpt your own puppet (this may require some homework), create a two-part mold and finally cast your puppet (along with your armature).
