Join us for this four day long day camp and learn how to animate! Middle school students ages 11-13 put their imaginations to work in the museum galleries creating hands-on projects that will culminate with their building a unique presentation that reveals the stories of our city and our country. This week, you will work with artist and video game designer Ken Amarit to use both hi- and lo-tech principles to conceptualize, create, and set in motion your own animation projects.

You will also meet museum historians, designers, and conservators; conduct investigations throughout the museum and library collections; and take a "behind-the-scenes" look at how objects are curated, preserved, and researched at the New-York Historical Society under the leadership of museum education staff.

For more information on Ken Amarit and this February's Camp History, check out the History Detectives blog post.

Ages 11 – 13.
