Children's Animation Workshop

Children's Animation Workshop

Local animator Mary Smyth hosts this fantastic workshop which will introduce children to the magical world of animation. Over the course of the morning, children will learn about traditional animation and image sequencing; how to look at a person’s action; and how to create their own flip books & phenakistoscope in a way that can be easily experimented with at home. For children aged between 6 and 12.
