Animation for Everyone: Stop Motion GIFs (December)

Stop Motion GIF by Annie Wong

Dive into the creative world of stop motion animation with our beginner-friendly one-day workshop. This immersive class covers the basics of a free stop motion app, introduces basic animation principles, and encourages hands-on experimentation with paper, clay, and found objects to create fun, looping animations on your mobile phone. By the end of the class, participants will learn to export their creations as looping GIFs and video, ideal for messages to friends, email attachments, or social media posts. No experience necessary, all are welcome!

Accessibility – This class takes place in the San Pablo Community Classroom, located on the first floor. Please email classes@kala.org regarding any  accessibility needs prior to enrolling so we can assess if we are able to accommodate you safely and efficiently.
