We're Back! - Mark Kistler's Summer Art Camp 2013

Sharpen your pencils, grab some paper.
Get ready! It's almost time!
Mark will show you how to get
on the paper, what's in your mind!
And Tommy Simms
will help you too
by animating your clay toons!
At the Imagination Station's
Summer Fine Arts Camp 2013

This Summer, I'll be back down 
Deep in the ART of Texas 
teaching kids the art of Stop-Motion Animation!

Mark Kistler, the host of the public television series
Mark Kistler's Imagination Station,
will be hosting a Fine Arts Camp July 15-19, 2013

Last year was a blast! And we're coming back with even more
Claymation! Drama! Painting! 3-D Drawing! and the popular SCRIBBLE-OFFS!

In my Stop-Motion Animation class, 
kids will learn the techniques behind making their very own films
and will be inspired to continue making movies at home!
All that's needed is a little bit of clay, a camera, 
any materials they'd like to use,
and the ability to let their imaginations run wild!

Watch the Claymations that my students made last year:
