Welcome to the BrickFlicks Academy
We’re an online platform where aspiring animators (ages 8+) can learn the fundamentals of stop motion animation, hone their abilities, and connect with other like minded creators.
We’re here to assist your child develop their creativity by teaching them the fundamentals of stop motion animation as well as other important STEAM-related skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Maths).
Kids are motivated by BrickFlicks to utilize their mobile devices for creation rather than passive consumption, making the most of their screen time.
To help your child’s creativity come to life, BrickFlicks blends computer abilities (using the app, frames, and FPS), creative crafts (creating sets out of paper, cards, and other materials), and storytelling skills.
Learning Through Creating
There is no better approach to investigate learning than to create. Our goal is for your child to fall in love with animation, and we accomplish this by assisting them in developing their individual skills one at a time.
When your child enrolls in the BrickFlicks Academy, they will:
- Be guided through each unique animation skill step by step so that they can take their time and expolre at their own speed.
- Encouraged to attempt, fail, and try again. Being creative is more important than being perfect.
- Make their own movies, stories, and animations
- Get assistance from BrickFlicks tutors who can offer guidance on any issue.
