2D Animation: Superhero Switch
This two hour creative young people’s workshop focuses on the fun hand-drawn animation technique of metamorphosis, transforming one object or character into another.
Who’s your favourite superhero? See them transform into their superhero selves in front of your own eyes! Recreate a quick costume change, from Peter Parker into Spiderman or Diana Prince into Wonder Woman! Or show us their best moves, spins and kapow! moments.
Great for young people who have never tried animation before or want to learn a new exciting technique. They will be able to create their own short animation sequence, which they will be able to take away as a film.
This session is for those aged 7-10 years old, parents are welcome to stay to help younger children and join in the fun. All materials will be provided.
