The Children’s Museum will be closed all day on Easter Sunday, April 20th. Sorry for any inconvenience.
New animation program for kids set to begin at U.P. Children’s Museum
Wow Animation, a new program for children in kindergarten through 12th grade, will hold an informational open house and is accepting registrations for its first classes. After school and during school breaks, children, and even members of their families, will be able to learn different animation techniques and create their own short animated videos.
Masha Kakhova, a former animator and creative director, is the program coordinator of Wow Animation. She said the open house would be a great opportunity for families to learn more about the new program.
“We are planning classes on cutout puppet animation, claymation, brick filming and pixilation,” Kakhova said. “Our goal is to provide quality learning opportunities to everyone who is interested in the art of animated filmmaking. During the open house we will show some examples and talk about our new program.”
