The MagicaLoop platform is an online resource for enjoying and learning about animation. We invite teachers, children and students to use this resource for school activities. The background information provided on this website will enrich your experience of the animation.
MagicaLoop is a digital-era tool for youth art education based on the Phenakistiscope optical device invented in the 19th century. The goal of this resource is to help you understand how animation works and discover the enjoyment of animating drawings and shapes. We encourage you to use this tool for educational activities.
