Welcome to Small World Animations. 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 schools, community centres, galleries, libraries and museums.
Because so many kids across the world are at home right now, I’ve converted my Posts page into a Kids Arts Resource, and am putting up 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 links to puppet shows, kids’ film recommendations and drawing tutorials by top children’s illustrators. Find out more by going to my Posts page to take a look. I’ll be adding more content regularly, so make sure you check back! 🙂
All the Small World activities are posted there, and are also 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. Brilliant – look forward to seeing your stuff! 🙂
Have fun, learn stuff, stay home and stay safe everyone! 🙂
Here’s an animation made by Stevie Youngculture, an 11 year old reggae MC from Birmingham, using the animation download I put together. It’s amazing! Have a go yourself and get in touch to send it to me – I will post it here 🙂
And here’s an oldie but goodie, an animation I made with a class of very lively and creative Year Ones! They were brilliant to work with, and through making their animation developed an interest in writing and storytelling – some “reluctant readers” went on to win literacy prizes that year 🙂 Hurray for art education!
