Life comes at you fast. If this year has taught us anything, it's how to think on our feet during rapidly changing conditions.

This summer, we'd planned to host our first, two-week stop-motion animation camp with the award-winning team at Reckless Abandonment Pictures. Even though the public health crisis forced us to cancel Camp Contemporary's summer session, the animation must go on!

Though not the immersive experience you'd get in person at Camp Contemporary, this week’s Camp-in-Place project will introduce you to the creative, tiny, entertaining (and sometimes addicting) world of stop-motion animation. Look around your home and yard for small everyday items that hold potential for big adventure.

Let's get started!

Don't forget to share your stop-motion animation video using #AtHomeArt.
