Frequently Asked Questions

Can I take this course if I am an elementary educator (grades K-5)?

Technically yes but we recommend this course for middle and high school students. Students ages 12+ have the spatial, motor and artistic skills necessary for the level of detail required for stop motion animation. If you’re up for a challenge and want to try it out with younger students, go for it but we can’t say we didn’t warn you!

What is the time requirements for this course?

We recommend at least 2-3 hours for you to take this course. As for teaching it to your students, we recommend at least 3 hours of class time. Take a look at our curriculum for more details.
