Each session of Brick Animation school focuses on hands on learning, while encouraging imagination and creativity. 

During the 10-week course, students will create original scripts & storyboards, design and build sets and backdrops, and learn to use film making equipment with the goal of creating a short stop motion brick animation film. 

While each session will collaboratively create 1 main short film, students will have the opportunity to also work on their own individual brick animation creations throughout the 10-week period, utilizing some of the theory and techniques learned in class.
