Kids get creative with Claymation workshop

LITTLE FALLS, N.Y. (WKTV) - The Mohawk Valley Center for the Arts held a Claymation Creation workshop Monday at Canal Place. The two day class is for children ten and up, teaching them the art of turning sculptures into movies.

Claymation combines digital photography with the sculptures, using subtle movement between frames and movies.

"The children are going to create some clay figures and then put them to music and video clip them the way she just showed them on her computer," said Pat Rockwell, President of the Mohawk Valley Center for the Arts Board of Directors.

The April Break workshop is part of the Mohawk Valley Center for the Arts plans to increase kids programming. They've started up Saturday programs and have upcoming summer programs as well.

"It can take you so many places and they have so much fun together socially as well as interacting and learning some new things things that they don't do," said Rockwell.

The Claymation worshop continues Tuesday from 10 am to noon and is $15 per day at 401 Canal Place, Little Falls.
