KU junior starts animation club to introduce animation basics and pursue collaborative projects

Friday, January 29, 2016

A new club at the University of Kansas is seeking to attract students with a passion for animation.

Ricky Smith, a junior from Lansing and the president of the KU Animation Club, began the organization last summer. Smith said he’d always been interested in animation, but didn’t have the opportunity to start a club until college. Smith said the Animation Club will welcome people who are learning to animate as well as those who are well-versed.
