In the first level of Animation, teens learn basic principles like squash and stretch, timing and spacing. They also practice the fundamentals of creating weight and flexibility and end the workshop by creating an animation of a bouncing character of their own design
The second level gives the teens the chance to expand on what they learned in the first. Here they explore new skills such as how to create arcs and animation circles. The teens finish the workshop with an animation of a walking character that they design.
The third level builds upon all the skills the students learned in the first two. They utilize the foundational principles of animation and the traditional animation workflow to learn about body mechanics in animation. In level three, the teens practice how to show weight in motion, cover the basics of character performance and learn how to use body language to tell a story.
