Garage’s Inclusive Programs department launches A Secret Animation Workshop—a new animation course for teenagers.
Making an animated film involves working with words, images, sound, and many other mediums, meaning animation requires a plethora of various specialists.
Participants of this workshop will take on many different roles, while developing plots and scripts, drawing, sculpting, cutting and pasting, recording sound and video, taking photographs, etc. The teenagers will also have the opportunity to learn how to make agreements with each other, work in a team, and find the most effective solutions to their tasks.
To complete the course, the group will run an open session where each participant will present their animated film.
