Welcome to the Spy Hop Art Shop Unlocking Animation course! This at-home learning resource will take students through a simple and fun journey to discover how animation works through short video episodes that will help students build skills as they go.
After engaging in this activity, students will be able to:
- Demonstrate understanding of animation vocabulary and concepts ((Utah Media Arts Standard 7-8.E.CR.5)
- Try out new ideas, materials and methods for art-making (Utah Media Arts Standard 6.V.CR.3)
- Create a flipbook to illustrate ideas, stories or concepts (Utah Media Arts Standard 5.VC.1)
We understand that creative endeavors can be overwhelming, so we have taken the “magic Spy Hop dust” and boiled it down to its barebones essence to ensure accessibility; these learning videos reference hardware you will likely have access to – via phone, tablet, computer, etc. as well as software that is free of charge. Each video is paired with an educator resource to allow you to gather materials, supplies and to brush up on important vocabulary words. These resources are designed to set you and your students up for success. It’s time to get started!
