Animation Station for Wimbledon Bookfest – Sunday

IMG_8308Day 2 of the Animation Station for Wimbledon Bookfest saw us working on larger scale animations with Artist and Illustrator Amy Pennington, as well as consolidating our work on stop motion animations using the emotion app on the i-Pad.

Click HERE for details of the Saturday workshop.


We started by looking at animations made at our previous animation course to give the children inspiration for new work. We looked at how to make simple props to tell a striking story.DSC_0042

We worked in groups to storyboard our ideas once more.DSC_0047 DSC_0051

We then started to make props out of card, paper, string and tape.DSC_0057
