This week in the Exploring Media class, we worked on something similar to last weeks assignment. Last week the students made their own animations settings and characters. This week, rather than using drawn backgrounds, we used light boxes. The students cut out their own characters on black paper and then placed them onto the light boxes. They used the same program, iStopMotion, to create their videos. Once again, I was shocked by the outcome. One student made two camels, another made a butterfly, and others made their favorite Pokémon or their favorite Star Wars characters

This week was full of reflections. I have been thinking a lot about the time I have been spending at CMA. It has been great to follow these kids through their journey of learning more about art. Each week, I can see them getting more excited about drawing or working on animation projects.
