Creative summer day camps for kids

Budaörs Animation Base and Creative Space, aka BABtér is once again announcing its popular summer day camps. This year, in addition to the animation, graphic design and music day camps are also offered for kids between the ages of 7 to 15. Kids can use the 300 square meters of BABtér, and in our courtyard, we will do playful games and activities with them, too. Also in our screening hall, we will show the kids the best children’s films of the Primanima World Festival of First Animations. 

The summer camps grew out of the Primanima Animation Fun Zone programme and from our weekly graphic design and music courses. The goal of the organisers and experienced art educators is, that kids could immerse themselves in the one-week intense creative work and to help them to discover the joy of creating. To join the day camps there is no need for previous artistic training, as more experienced peers and art teachers are joining to help kids who have not yet previously animated, have knowledge of graphic design, or played music.

 

ANIMATION SUMMER CAMPS

Our animation summer camp is more popular than ever! Compared to previous years, there will be more weeks to join. During the one-week day, camp children will learn a variety of animation techniques, including puppet, plasticine, lego, paper-cut, and digital animation. In our cozy art rooms, they can make animated scenes and also make their first animated short film. We use modern Canon cameras and Apple computers for filming and we help them learn how to use digital tools creatively, while at the same time tracing them back to the love of traditional materials. But the tools stay in the background because the main goal is to encourage children to develop their creative abilities.

On the afternoon of the last day, we will screen the films made at the camp for the children and their parents.

MUSIC DAY CAMPS 

Participants of the music day camps can start to learn about different instruments (guitar, bass, drums, electronic drums, piano, synthesizer, ukulele, baglama, and other special percussion and instruments), and about different recording and studio techniques. Children can learn the tricks of realizing their own musical ideas at home. The camp will also give the opportunity to kids to create sound effects for films. All this takes place in the special music studio of BABtér, and the end result will be a sound recording that the children can take and use freely at the end of the camp. The camp is led by musician Gergő Kovács, in cooperation with other musicians and other instructors, using personalized learning methods.

Children can join the camp as a complete beginner, but of course, those who already have a musical or instrumental background are welcomed, too.
