Project Description:

This project will introduce students to the history and art of traditional animation, including Walt Disney.  Students will learn how animation is created and about the art and illusion of movement.  Students will learn how to create a flip book.  They can follow directions to make a few practice animations, and then depending on ability, can make their own story and animation.  

Notice: Docent or Teacher Lead Project Only!

This lesson is meant to be done with a docent or teacher teaching the project.  There are no resources for a student to do on their own at home.  If needed we may supply them at a later time.


Flip book*, pencil, eraser.  Optional: colored pencils (to add color to animations), handouts (various available) 

* Hands on Art schools doing this project have books to supply.  If you do not have access to pre-made books, there are on-line tips on how kids can make their own flip books that can be used instead.
