Do you have students who enjoy working digitally and have a creative flair?
This arts workshop will enable students to create art pieces digitally with Stop Motion Animation.
Stop Motion Animation is a digital toolbox. This platform enables students to naturally create, with endless options and through various techniques.
Each class will start off with featuring a different digital artist, then there will be an art demo teaching a new technique.
Students will then have a Creation Challenge to make a piece featuring that technique. Afterwards students will design, develop, and create personalized projects. It will be choice inspired, where students develop an art piece in their area of interest. There will also be themes and prompts to help students develop their own personal ideas.
This class is worth .5 high school credit art, digital art, technology or elective.
“You want to be free with your art, because you want to make it your own art. When someone looks at my art, they can see that I made it. You put all your heart, passion, and effort into something that you really enjoyed.”

Miss Alli has been teaching my daughters on zoom, both art and sign language from across the globe! It is one of the highlights of both of their days and they cannot wait to get started each week. Miss Alli is an amazing, patient and kind teacher and can keep kids engaged for their sessions even over zoom. My kids are learning so much from her and I am so thankful that my children get to work with Miss Alli.
Taps into Talents
Miss Alli is one of a kind. She was able to tap into talents I never knew my children had. My kids looked forward to her classes and their creativity blossomed just by being around her! She is extremely talented.
Warmth, confidence, intuition, talent, and joy
Miss Alli has the most magical way of leading her art classes! She embodies so much warmth, confidence, intuition, talent, and joy. Her many years of experience show when she walks around the room, engaging and guiding every student in creating their own unique masterpiece. She facilitates every style and personality, helping them express that which they never thought they could. Miss Alli doesn’t lead regular art classes, she touches souls through art and love. Being in Miss Alli’s classroom is a most wonderful experience that leaves all of her students feeling happier and more connected to themselves, those around them, and the world at large!
Advanced Art Techniques
Miss Alli not only taught my children unique and advanced art techniques with such skill and patience but perhaps more importantly, she infused in them a love and curiosity surrounding what it means to be an artist. She wet their appetite so they could see themselves as lifelong learners of the craft. There’s nothing I could want more for my children than an educator who values their involvement in the process just as much as the end result. Miss Alli is a breath of fresh air in her unique ability to meet each kid where they are with palpable enthusiasm.”
Skillful and Imaginative
Miss. Alli is wonderful! A skillful and imaginative artist herself, she has a lovely, calming energy and she sees the true artist hidden in each child. Children blossom under her instruction and encouragement, discovering the artistic style and form that speaks to them. All of my kids loved their time with Miss. Alli, from my oldest who is naturally drawn to art to my middle son whose previous refrain was always, “I hate art.” Ms. Alli helped my oldest daughter to try out new media, understand art as a means of self-expression, and clarify the narratives behind her artwork. And she got my skeptic son to engage and enjoy art for the first time!
