Summer school electives are for three of the six weeks of summer school which means I got a new group of artists last Monday. I started this group on stop motion right away. There was a very uncomfortable heat wave last week so I figured we could take half the class to work on our stop motion charactors and settings and half the class to chill in front of the fan and watch Wallace and Grommit, James and the Giant Peach and Shaun the Sheep. We also watched this great short on the behind the scenes of James and the Giant Peach as well as this great Frankenweenie behind the scenes short.
Inspired and hot, this is what the kindgarten through third grade group came up with! click here
More to come from the 4th through 6th grade group!
