Stop motion animation is the perfect outlet for kids' stories. For the Animation Studio experience, I designed an iPad animation station that takes finicky camerawork out of the picture so kids can focus on telling their stories. I developed storytelling tools to inspire creative storylines, and a series of video tutorials so learners can step up their stop-mo techniques.
STORYTELLING WITH STOP-MO
The Style Studio is a place for kids to pursue their passion for fashion design. I developed a self-directed learning methodology that helps kids design garments and accessories through mix-and-match gif-guide tutorials and open-ended sewing projects. For the selvedge seamstresses, I created the Jeans Lab–a kid-friendly method for making jorts (i.e., jean shorts).
SELF DIRECTED SEWING
The art of breadmaking seems so simple, and yet it can take years to master. In the Bakery, I worked with master breadmaker Josey Baker, to create a self-directed method for kids to make their own artisan bread. I designed the environment for the activity to inspire and instruct without any adult intervention. Go gluten!
