School Holiday Program - Stop Animation

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Turn your kids' screen time into a creative learning experience! 

Stop-animation is a fun way for kids to learn the basics of art, technology and storytelling. 

Stop-motion is a film technique that takes many photos and turns them into a moving image. Building worlds with pipe cleaners and toy animals, kids learn how to create a story, take photos and use software to turn these photos into a short film to share with friends and family. 

Working together in pairs, they learn to collaborate, and make new friends. But that's not all - stop motion has all sorts of benefits beyond just being a fun activity. It helps improve hand-eye coordination, encourages problem-solving skills, and boosts creativity and self-confidence.
