Stop motion animation workshops that make using technology in an educational, creative and FUN way! Suitable for 5-12 year olds, students get to design, storyboard, create and animate at least two short films over six hours using Lego™, clay, toys and art.
Developed and delivered by Early Childhood Teacher Viv Jennings and Animation Writer / Producer Fran Wood, Rockshelf Academy enables your child to have
‘screen time’ in a super productive, fun and healthy way.
The workshops are structured with regular breaks for physical movement, games and shared learning. Kids learn the basics of stop motion animation, creative
writing, set, character and prop design, digital art and video production. At the end of the day they’ll have their own character profile, storyboard
and videos to share with family and friends.
“Absolutely love this! Thanks so much Fran and Viv my boys had a ball. I was greeted with ‘Our day was epic!’ and have two super proud kids that want to share their videos with everyone!” - Kate
