Stop Motion Animation as an Agent for Change
This course will investigate information we consume from news coverage to social media and visually respond to current event issues through the medium of stop motion animation. Students will create artwork to socially engage an audience of their peers. Through the process of making art, students will begin to see the world differently as the medium of drawing- specifically charcoal-rendered stop motion animation, becomes a tool for communicating ideas. Students will choose a current crisis (consumer culture or global warming, for instance) that they will turn into their stop motion animation.
