Animation for all ages

With the help of our community partners, ASIFA-Atlanta's Animation brings animation workshops and educational activities to classrooms and community organizations across Georgia. Our programs can be built for all ages. Be sure to visit Vimeo and YouTube for videos of past workshops!

Animation Draw
Participants create a series of line drawings using animation paper, a lightbox, pegboard and markers. The finished drawings are numbered, compiled and edited into one animated film. Ages 7+

Animation Stands
DYI animation pros demonstrate money saving tips and rig building to get small budget animation projects from script to indie screens. Ages 12+

Screenings and talks
From traditional to stop motion, ASIFA-Atlanta's archives offer a rich source of contemporary and classical animation. Screenings are a great way to supplement workshops and highlight styles and spark discussions. All Ages
