Our Curriculum

THE CLASSROOM

Claymation excites kids in the movie-making process by giving them full control to create the story, make their characters, and design the movie sets.




IDEA CREATION

It starts with the imagination of the children. They become the story tellers. Storytelling is, after all, a principle motivation for art making. They take ownership in the process and are filled with excitement which keeps them engaged. We encourage free thinking, collaboration, curiosity and positivity.




DESIGN

Claymation incites the interest and the enthusiasm of the children with the possibility of creating their own movie. This interest and enthusiasm awakens a constructive energy . Claymation becomes a catalyst for physical and mental design to happen.




TINKERING

Is all about process. It begins with the curiosity of how something works. We encourage them to solve problems on their own. This hands on learning leads them to improvements and innovations.




MAKING

We bring to the class, a variety of materials. The kids are open to select any they would like. From the ordinary like straws or blocks to found objects in nature like rocks or shells, we encourage the making process.








S.T.E.A.M

Creating their character, designing & making the movie sets and understanding how things move requires the skills of an engineer, a mathematician, and an artist.




MEASUREMENT AND TIME

Introduction of weight, scale, timing, fractions in film-making.




PHYSICS AND ENGINEERING

Understanding gravity, balance, strength of materials.




AUDIO & VIDEO TECHNOLOGY

Learning the basic concepts of audio/video recording, editing and music/sound effect placement.



 








TESTIMONIALS

“….Julian really enjoyed Claymation. We were not sure how she was going to do in it but once we got the final DVD we must’ve watched as a family over a dozen times and she hasn’t stopped laughing yet. Sounds to me like that was great teambuilding and energy for the kids to complete this project“
