Summer Camp: Session 4 – Pop, Flip, & Create: Paper Mechanics

701 Center for Contemporary Art in Columbia offers Summer Camp: Pop, Flip, & Create: Paper Mechanics July 22 – 26 for ages 6 – 8. This workshop will teach the basic principles of making 3-dimensional paper art and creating the optical illusion of motion using Zoetrope animation. Students will practice their illustration skills by creating their own original characters for mechanical “pop-up” books, Zoetropes, squash books and shadow puppetry. At the end of the week, the group will produce a play featuring students’ hand-crafted shadow puppets.
