H. B. Beal High School
525 Dundas Street
London, Ontario

 

In this workshop participants will be introduced to new modes of creating moving images - utilizing animated gifs to generate short narratives. With examples from contemporary artists including Lorna Mills, Lilli Carré, Tom Moody and others, students will learn the basic fundamentals to begin experimenting in this short form of animation. Moving from the basic history of this art form they will be introduced to Photoshop Elements and then have time to create their own projects. A consideration of the unique qualities intrinsic to animated gifs (the infinite loop) will be stressed as students bring digital drawing into the temporal realm.

 

This workshop is open to H.B. Beal Secondary School students.
