Daily price for morning session:   $45.00

 

AFTERNOON SESSION:

STOP MOTION ANIMATION:

Students will use innovative software to combine the power of PC and stop-motion animation to bring LEGO® figures and objects to life. Creating stop-motion animation not only encourages the development of story-telling, it also provides an opportunity for kids to use the PC as a movie production tool. Each child will create a film based on his/her own vision and imagination.
