This online camp will explore narratives of fantastic beasts and magical worlds, discussing how puppets, sets, and special effects all work together to create magic on film. After looking at our favorite magical tales, students will write their own scripts, design costumes and props, and learn live-action filmmaking techniques to create a collaborative film that can be shared with family and friends. Class size is limited to 15 children.
Suggested Art Materials: stop-motion software (available for free), butcher paper, construction paper, scissors, glue sticks, cardboard, markers, mixed media sketchbook, watercolors, watercolor brushes. Prior to class, students will receive a curated list with purchase links, as well as DIY alternatives.
Please Note: This class takes place on Eastern Standard Time (EST).
