How to make a Flip Book Animation by Mr. Otter Art Studio. Make a simple animation with a sticky note pad and a pen or pencil. This is a great activity for the young and the old. You will learn how to move things from side to side, make something larger and draw a stick figure jumping and waving. Use your own style for this project, I am giving you the basics, take it as far as you want it to go. There are animations from my art class at the end, they are worth the wait!
