Our Animation Camp is hosted at New Hampton School in partnership with The Walt Disney Family Museum
(WDFM). In this 10-day overnight camp, students will learn the 12 principles of animation, storytelling, and short film development in digital 2D. With individual and group instruction from Travis Lacina, WDFM Education Studio Manager.
Students will benefit from six hours of instruction every day working on individual animation projects hosted in the school's animation lab, fully equipped with Wacom tablets and Apple technology.
The animation class will also welcome a special guest instructor via Skype, Andreas Deja, a long-time Disney animator best known for his work on Jafar (Aladdin) and Scar (The Lion King). Andreas will teach students how to draw the classic Disney character, Mickey Mouse.
When students aren't learning the art of animation, there will be extracurricular evening and weekend activities including sports, off-campus trips to area attractions, swimming and other fun summer activities.
