Animation Workshop for Kids with Steven Aiton

  • Midland Junction Arts Centre 276 Great Eastern Highway Midland, WA, 6056 Australia

Discover some secrets of animation; explore the characteristics and movement of horses; develop a short-story based on your idea; then create your own animated film.

Join Steven Aiton at Midland Junction Arts Centre to create your own animation using mobile technology, ipads, recycled materials, paper and drawing materials. Steven will teach stop-motion animation skills and assist participants to create their own 12 frame Zoetrope (a pre-film form of animation). Participants will learn about the historical significance of the zoetrope and will use a series of materials to craft their short film.

At the end of the session there will be a short screening of the work that family and friends are invited to attend. This workshop is part of a larger project called Habits of Horses. Participant’s completed artwork may be displayed as part of the Habits of Horses exhibition on show in August.
