I’ve got fourteen keen-as-mustard comic artists this term, and they are already coming up with some wonderful ideas, including a graphic novel and a very exciting joint project featuring a story told from three different points of view. This is a degree of sophistication I came across in works of authors and filmmakers only when I went to university, so I was a bit blown away when they announced what they were going to do. In fairness all three are super-creative, bright kids – am very excited to see how this works out.
After a jam-packed session at TAAG on Tuesday, next on the bill is Animation Club at Teignmouth Library, kicking off next Monday from 4-5pm. See below for more details 🙂
Our theme will be Mythical Creatures (aka monsters!) and the kids will get to create and animate their own special mythical creature, making up unique, individual stories.
We still have places available, so please get in touch if you need more info and to book!
Two Small World events are coming up in February: a one-off animation workshop during half term celebrating the release of the new Aardman film “Early Man”, and an animation club kicking off at Teignmouth library after half term 🙂
“Early Person” Animation Workshop
To celebrate the release of “Early Man” come and create and animate your own 3D early cave person character! This fun workshop is aimed at 7-12 year-olds, but open to keen-beans either side of that age group 🙂
Running from 10am-12.30pm on Tuesday 13th February at TAAG, Northumberland Place in Teignmouth, you have the option of staying to enjoy making and creating with your child, or dropping them off and collecting them at the end of the session. Unaccompanied children must be aged 8 and over.
The session is £8 per child, with sibling reductions available. Advance booking is essential as there are limited spaces.
Animation Club at Teignmouth Library
We’ll be inventing and creating characters, making up stories and working in all sorts of different media to make short 2D and 3D animations.
The price for all five sessions is £20 per child, payable in advance. Booking in advance is essential. The club is aimed at 7-11 year olds, but 6 year olds can join if accompanied by an adult at all the sessions. Limited number of places so early booking advised.
