Claymobile Claymation Learning Labs bring all the equipment necessary to create short stop-motion videos anywhere they are invited. The use of ipad technology and portable sculpting kits can turn any classroom, park, or office space into an animation studio. The program is geared towards working in urban public schools or places where access to technology or arts programming is limited. Students learn about hosting videos online and are invited to use the Claymobile youtube channel as an open and positive place to share the creative works they create both with and outside the program.
The Claymobile Claymation Learning Labs is currently providing six-week claymation courses at the Stepping Stones Scholar program at William Penn Charter School and the Tacony Branch of The Free Library of Philadelphia. The Claymation videos created at these residencies are available for public viewing on our youtube page ClaymobileTCS (http://www.youtube.com/user/CLAYMOBILETCS) . This summer Claymation workshops will also be provided for the general public at Eakins Oval (a local park), where everyone is invited to stop by the Learning Lab pop-up and animate.
