About the Workshop

Animator Peggy Fussell will introduce participants to early optical toys and traditional forms of animation. We will examine ways that contemporary artists are incorporating vintage techniques into their work. Participants will try out a few animation techniques using basic tools. Together we will make a quick and easy collaborative animation (over zoom!) This workshop will provide tips and tricks for creating magical special effects and a basic editing demonstration.
