Local students get involved in stop-motion animation camp

ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) – The Rochester Art Center is hosting a stop-motion animation camp this month. Participating students are learning different different filmmaking techniques like how to sync a voice to an animated character.

The camp runs through the end of July with each week focusing on a different age group. This week it’s fifth and sixth graders.

Instructors say animation helps teach patience and perseverance, among other important life skills. “Whether it’s band, whether it’s choir, whether it’s musicals, or visual animation, all of those skills that you use like they’re using in the classroom right now are incredibly important for anything that we do in the real world,” said camp instructor Kelly Schrandt.

Organizers say this is the first year the camp is being offered at the art center.
