Thank you to all who came to our ‘Frozen’ InspirEd animation session at the weekend. We had loads of fun making and animating little handmade snowmen.
It was a 1.5hr taster session designed to gently introduce children to stop motion animation. We began by looking at different types of snowmen which led to drawing a character and deciding on what colours were needed. After a short modelling demo the children created their characters out of plasticine. The children were then introduced to iStopmotion and asked to animate their snowmen doing something simple like waving.
The session has given the children a strong grounding in animation basics and we hope to see them again on one of our longer workshops in the new year.
