Program Philosophy: Animated Adventures believes that everyone has a story to tell and characters to bring to life. Animation is an art form that anyone can use to express themselves with many different kinds of media. We believe that the start of any animation education should be hands-on mixed-media animation with paper, clay, drawing, etc. For children this strengthens motor skills and provides a physical creative outlet. Computer animation is best approached after having an initial experience with mixed-media animation.
Faculty Description: Animator Wendy Jackson Hall teaches most Animated Adventures classes, with assistance as needed from other local animators. Wendy's experience in animation spans over a decade, and she has taught animation workshops for thousands of students.
