Introduction to Animation

November 18, 2016

Just finishing up week two in my new school placement. Just about getting used to the new art rooms and new students. Last year my tutor told me I should bring some of my own art into my schemes for the students, so I made a conscious decision to try and do just that this year. Having worked both in animation recently I decided it would be an exciting project to tackle with my students. I began the scheme with the origins of animation -Victorian animation machines and toys of the 1800's. First we made a thaumatrope, the most basic animation of all, combining just two frames/images. I asked them to brainstorm the themes 'pairs' or 'opposites' in a mind map. I was really happy with the results and the imaginative approach some students took.
