Discover Your Story! Join Tracey the pencil dog and her crew on a fantastically immersive journey to create stories using art and science. Channel your creativity using animation basics such as storyboarding, sketching, stop-motion movie making, and more!

The vibrant, whimsical exhibit allows kids and adults to get lost in the creative process, even if they have never thought of themselves as artists. The exhibit features Tracey’s Studio where little ones act as animators using a storyboard to develop their own narrative. Guests will place storyboard cards together to curate an animation and watch it come to life on the screen! Blub-Glub Village’s underwater world gives kids a chance to enjoy an iconic full-body experience as they create 14-frame animations.

The Prickle Desert features a multitude of learning opportunities, including different frame rates, movement concepts and more, and guests can test out the mutoscope showing a reel of images like a flip book animation. Little animators can also gather props at Comfort Peaks to aid in creating their own animation. Here they will immerse themselves into a cozy world of smiling mountains, wacky space creatures and Rooth the lumbering mountain. The Foley booth challenges the Museum’s small animators to add sounds to short animated clips using ordinary objects and props.

Animationland is sponsored locally by Publix Supermarket Charities with additional support from City of Atlanta Mayor's Office of Cultural Affairs and Fulton County Arts & Culture.
