Sunday Afternoons for Kids: Animated Writing: Character Sketches

Sunday Feb 6, 2011 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM This is a past program

Recommended for ages 8–13.

Students will learn how basic shapes like circles, squares, and triangles are transformed and made three-dimensional in order to create animated characters. Using these techniques, participants will draw their own original characters and write character sketches for their creations. Instructor Lucas Gray is an animator with 20 years experience working in television. He is currently an assistant director for Family Guy.

The Hammer’s free collaborative workshops, presented with 826LA, are designed for groups of up to 20 students. Reservations are encouraged. Please visit workshops.826la.org or call 310-305-8418.

Hammer Kids and Family Flicks are made possible, in part, through the generosity of supporters and friends of the Hammer Museum’s Kids’ Art Museum Project (K.A.M.P.), a family fundraiser. Additional support is provided by the Westwood Neighborhood Council.
