Is your child creative or are you looking for something a little different for them to do after school? Are they obsessed with their iPads or tablets? We show them how to bring their ideas to life with our fun and creative after school program on Wednesday evenings, where they can learn how to make their own clay animations.
This is a really fun way to introduce children to animation. In this great 6 week program, children learn to create and film their own animation using clay figures, something that they can continue to do at home long after the workshops.
We are running this program at the Balla Balla Community Centre in Cranbourne on Wednesday evenings 4.30-5.30pm from 2nd May, and the workshop will teach children the basics of clay animation, from designing and making their own characters and sets, storyboarding, adding sound and editing their final animation. No experience necessary, clay and materials provided, bring along their ipad or a camera to film. Suitable for children age 10-14.
Wednesday evenings, 6 x 1 hour sessions in Cranbourne.
Clay animation or ‘Claymation’ is a type of animation that uses clay figures. The animator then films them one photo at a time to create a feeling of movement. The most famous examples of claymation are Shaun the Sheep and Wallace and Gromit.
