Welcome to Small World Animation and Creative workshops. Small World is Claire Evans, a Devon (UK) based artist working in digital media, stop motion animation and illustration. I think up and run creative workshops and projects for younger kids (5-12 years) and people with learning disabilities. In more normal times this would be in schools, community centres, galleries, libraries and museums, but now I’m starting to do online video workshops and these are FREE at the moment. Scroll down to have a go at the “Make Your Own Puppet Theatre” video workshop. I am also running Zoom workshops with the brilliant Magic Carpet Wellbeing in Exeter.
Because of the pandemic I’ve converted my Posts page into a Kids Arts Resource, and have posted some of my own art-based learning activities for children, as well as links to activities and resources across the internet that you can access for free. There are kids’ film recommendations and drawing tutorials by top children’s illustrators. Find out more by going to my Posts page to take a look.
All the Small World activities are available as FREE PDFS – quite a few of you have already downloaded them. It would be great to see your work! Either get in touch via the Contact Form below, or if you’re on Instagram tag me @small_world_animations and add #smallworldanimations. Look forward to seeing your stuff! 🙂
The animation download has been really popular 🙂 If you haven’t had a go at it yet here it is below!
FREE VIDEO WORKSHOP!
I’m now making Video Workshops available to help people with their socially distanced creativity. Here’s the first one I made for the brilliant Magic Carpet in Exeter. It’s so easy to make your own puppet theatre – have a go!
