Students Participate in Animation Workshop

2 March 2017

On Thursday 28th February, ten students were selected from Year 8 and 9 to participate in an animation workshop with the artist Sarah Jane Palmer at Mansfield Museum.

Students worked alongside the artist to the theme of ‘Head in the Clouds,’ thinking about what they would see and creating a series of stop motion animations that will then be projected inside a cloud sculpture. This sculpture is being created especially to be exhibited in the ‘AniMotion’ exhibition, a specially commissioned selection of works inspired by animation techniques that will be in place until Saturday 1st April at the Museum.

Students worked in pairs to create mini animations before working collaboratively to produce the outcome that will be exhibited in the gallery.  It was a fantastic opportunity for all involved to learn about the processes behind the scenes and how animations are created.
