Explore the history, science and creative possibilities of animation as you create three optical toys: a thaumatrope, a zoetrope strip and a flip-book.
Through the creation of three 19th-century optical toys—thaumatropes, zoetrope strips and flip-books—students will learn about the history, science and creative possibilities of two-dimensional animation. Art supplies will be provided to be used during the workshop.
