Connecting Art With the Real World
Building on the core of the Wild Ideas Book Project, this program gives kids a unique chance to work with professional artists to create their very own animation! Kids get an up-close opportunity to be involved with production and learn the basics of animation, from character/background design, to sound effects and storyboarding. Kids also get a crash course in digital art (Photoshop) and receive their very own Wacom drawing tablet to take home and further their drawing skills. The project is geared toward giving kids who are passionate about cartoons an experience that they will never forget. It is designed to give them a foretaste of how exciting professional art can be and to spur them on toward their dreams. Currently, the first animation project is in development, and we are seeking grant funding to launch our beta program for this exciting new venture. This page will be updated as the project unfolds.
