Animation Workshop

On Saturday Dec.5th, Junior Scholars were treated to an Animation workshop with professional Animators Nina Frenkel and Ru Kuwahata. We were very lucky to have such talented artists explain this exciting field to us with an engaging and inspiring presentation/workshop!

The workshop began with an overview of what Animation is and its history:

Here, Ru explains her work process with the company she co-founded, Tiny Inventions.
Ru shared some of the characters and objects she crafts by hand,
and showed us how she and her partner Max (shown below) bring these objects to life through Animation.

And finally, Nina walked students through an introductory exercise on Adobe Flash, giving them a chance to apply a what they learned today!
The scholars left this workshop with a strong understanding of what Animation is, and what kind of careers are available in this area.
Thanks so much to Ru and Nina!
