Free Online Animation Website: PiskelApp
I just taught this class yesterday and the kids loved it! Here are easy directions for a class, NO experience necessary!
1.Go to www.Piskelapp.com and click Create Sprite.
2. The program defaults to Pen in Black. Draw a face and keep it simple.
3. Click the Duplicate button on the bottom right of the frame you just made and see an exact copy of your face plus a preview of your animation on the right side of the screen.
4. Make a small change to the duplicate frame. Click duplicate and make another change to frame 3. Add a background color to make more interesting. Create 12 frames.
5. Click Export, Upload. You’ll see your GIF ready at a URL, click on the URL and see the GIF.
Fun! Scale the frames to make bigger on your screen!
