In this spooktacular workshop, children will be introduced to the dark art of hand drawn animation. They will design an unassuming character, and then transform it into a fantastical monster over the course of 5-8 drawings. They’ll also create some animation in a flipbook which they can bring home.
Participants will work in groups to create spine tingling scenes of animated horror, limited only by their own squeamishness. This workshop will no doubt be suited to animation enthusiasts of an unwholesome disposition. Paper Panther’s workshop facilitators hope that through engaging with the craft of plasticine animation, they might once again become moral and upright members of society.
We also have some upcoming workshops in the Ark:
Our first workshop is being hosted by PP’s Pádraig at the Ark as part of the Animation Art Show, with a more in depth series of workshops beginning in June and continuing into August which you can check out HERE, HERE, & HERE We’ll be posting more information on those workshops once final details are all confirmed!
PP’s Pádraig recently had the pleasure of hosting a Sand Animation workshop with the Animation Students of Ballyfermot College of Further Education. Many thanks to the participating students and the staff and board of BCFE!
