Experience the magic of making your art come alive! This workshop will introduce you to the basic animation principals of movement, looping, framing, and how to create animation cells. Using free online software, you will learn how to make an animated GIF from your drawings, paintings, or photographs.

The first day of the workshop will showcase artists and illustrators using animated GIFs in their practice. It will cover animation principals, and feature a demonstration of the software. You will then have time to work on an animated GIF on your own, and the workshop instructor will be available to answer questions via email.

In the second day of the workshop, we will meet up to share our work and discuss! This is great way to learn or practice getting and giving constructive feedback on your and others work.

Participants will need a computer, internet access, and the ability to photograph or scan images and transfer these images to a computer. Imaging software such as Photoshop is helpful, but not required.
