The day-long animation workshop is very popular in schools and is suitable for KS 2, 3, and 4. The workshop will introduce participants to the world of animation; projects can be linked to curriculum areas and themes.
All the equipment is provided: six laptops and cameras, materials and scenery. All I require is a classroom with tables and power points.
A DVD of the work made will be sent on to the school after the event and the films will be potsed on Youtube for students to watch and share from home.
