Animating Cartoons Summer Day-Camp for ages 9-14 (West Seattle)
Unified Outreach @ Ginomai Art Center in West Seattle provides a unique Summer Day-Camp option for Parents who are interested in seeing their child attain a stronger grasp of Arts & Technology in a fun and exciting environment.
An average afternoon of Summer Day-Camp will include educational exercises embedded in fun games designed to encourage personal growth, positive self-esteem and team building skills. The day will also include physical activities and outdoor time (as weather allows) including lunch in the park. But the highlight of each day will be working on the creation of a personal cartoon-animation using the kids’ own ideas, stories, drawings and voices; of which they will have their very own DVD to show to friends and family.
NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! Our students are coached by knowledgeable, skilled instructors who will work with the kids each step of the way; from story development, to character design, digital imaging, cartoon animation, and voice-overs using industry-level production software including Adobe Photoshop, Flash, Soundbooth, and more.

I’m sure everyone has heard of folklife, it is a festival that happens downtown. So many people go and it’s always a great time. This festival is so well known that this year (2013) there was about 220,000-230,000 people that showed up. It was a 4 day festival; full of music, food, and amazing people. Even though it wasn’t very nice or sunny outside there was still a great turn out. A little rain can’t stop people from having a wonderful time with their friends and family. Folklife started 42 years ago; it was mostly acoustic fiddle and banjo affair. I honestly love how this festival is continuing throughout the years, and more is being added to it. If you haven’t attended folklife yet; try it out next year! You will love it.
The Harlem Shake is becoming more and more popular as time goes by. I’ve notice a-lot of students and large groups making their own Harlem Shake videos. I, myself have been apart of some as well. I honestly don’t understand the point of this dance but it is very fun to be in one of the videos. It seems to me that its getting so popular that even churches and parties are beginning to make the videos. So if your bored, and with some friends, find a camera, download the song, get some CRAZY outfits and make a video!
This year Unified Outreach launched its first summer day camp series with a focus on Animating Cartoons using the Adobe Flash animation program. During the Seattle Public Schools 2012 Winter Break, Unified Outreach will again offer week-long day camp hours for parents who are interested in seeing their child attain a stronger grasp of todays Cartoon Animation technology.
An average afternoon of Winter Break Day-Camp will again include educational exercises embedded in fun games designed to encourage personal growth, positive self esteem and team building skills. Each day also includes physical activities and outdoor lunch time (as weather allows). But the highlight of each day will be working on the creation of a personal cartoon-animation using the kids ideas, stories, drawings and voices.
NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! Most students come in with no previous traditional or contemporary cartooning experience. Each student is coached by multiple instructors who work with the kids each step of the way; from story development, to character design, digital imaging, cartoon animation, and voice-overs using industry-level production software including Adobe Photoshop, Flash, Soundbooth, and other software programs that were donated by Adobe Systems, Inc and King County 4Culture.
Doors open each day at 8:30am and close at 5:30pm – Parents have the flexability of dropping off and picking up their child at anytime during operational hours. Class will also be offered on both Christmas Day and on New Years Day.
Each week is a stand-alone unit. Students attending 2 weeks will have the opportunity to build on the skills they learned during the first week of class.
