As part of the Year 3’s Art Award they were able to take part in an Animation Workshop at the Baltic with animator Lesley Ann Rose. She showed the children some of her work including The Misfortunes of Spatula Head which she created for Channel 4.
The children then had the opportunity to use an animation program called i-Stop to animate the movement of the a range of objects.
The next stage was to create their own group animations by making their own models from Plasticine.
Although the children only had a very short time to create these models the staff were amazed at their talents!
