Ever wondered how Animation Education is beneficial to children?

As per an Analysis of Comprehension of Animation Logic in Young Children by Wendy Jackson Hall (Animation Artist/Educator, Seattle) presented at the 2002 Society for Animation Studies Conference, Glendale, CA

  • Creative Writing and Language skills are engaged while writing the script. Principles of storytelling, story structure, characters and settings help children express themselves and experiment.
  • Mathematical, logical, and spatial skills are used in organizing the visual project, sequencing the frames, timing and spacing drawings.
  • Science and Physics: Children apply the laws of the natural world to their animation. Persistence of vision, cameras /projection technology, laws of movement, velocity, gravity and metamorphosis are scientific principles that children are exposed to while understanding the principles of animation.
  • Art and Creativity is encouraged when students draw and animate their stories applying aesthetic principles of design, composition, contrast and visual symbols.
  • Motor skills: hand-eye coordination and the ability to repeat a drawing.
