Learn stop motion animation basics with Adina Cohen (Robot Chicken, Supermansion, Buddy Thunderstruck, MODOK, Anomilisa) using tools and methods that can be recreated at home! What’s special about this 2-session class is that it’s designed for adult family members to work with the kids in their lives to learn and create together.

In this class, Adina will give step-by-step instructions on how to build a basic wire armature, what materials to use, and where to find them. As well as a crash course on the principles of animation and how best to approach them in the stop motion style of animation.

This class will be in 2 parts with an opportunity in the second class to animate your own short scene. Materials will be provided and you’ll be able to take a puppet home to continue practicing!

Adina Cohen is currently working at LAIKA for the upcoming animated film Wildwood. Outside of her professional experience, Adina has created and worked on numerous independent Short Films including her award-winning short, Pirouette, which you can currently check out on her website,
