I taught an animation workshop today at the Taste of Tech 2017 conference. Below are the lessons we tried to cover and links to the resources. Click on the Thinglink image to go directly there. Thumb through the slideshow for quick tips. Page 1. Page 2.
I was able to attend Kim Darche's session about questioning techniques. To help me remember the great ideas she was sharing, I made this sketchnote.
I started combining three free apps to make one strong statement about contour line negative and positive portraits.
The Photo Grid collage app is free, clean, and full of functions. (I like that it doesn't leave a watermark on your artwork like pic collage). I played with a bunch of ways to put the negative/positive images together in the app. I thought about matching the images so they complete each other. I thought about notans and the play of light and dark as I created these.
Maggie won the iPad animation party in the Dryden raffle to raise money for ABC/25 Grant Foundation. She and her guests had an app smashing session while we transformed ourselves into flying fairies. See the lesson here. We used the iPad camera, Superimpose App , SketchbookX, DoInk Animation app, and the Google Drive to share our files. View the fairies on Artsonia here.
