Dawn Feather, an iStopMotion veteran, is back at it! In a previous blog post we detailed how Dawn and her colleagues are using iStopMotion at InspirED Workshops and why they chose the innovative software. Dawn and her colleagues are back at it again, this time at the Royal Armouries in Leeds, UK. InspirED was invited to create and deliver three imaginative animation activities for families attending the museum to take part in. The criteria for included designing two days of drop-in animation activities lasting between 10 and 30 minutes and one day of two-hour animation workshops.
Although the InspirED team was on hand to guide participants, most participants were able to create short animations with little or no instruction. They retold classic Greek myths and tales about viscous Vikings with clay and other pre-made props. Working in small groups made up of mostly families, parents, grandparents and children, the new animators were able to create some amazing short animations! You can check them out here.
Check out Dawn’s blog post about the event here! We love how Dawn has been using iStopMotion, not only to inspire her own students, but to also foster connection and collaboration in different settings. We can’t wait to see what else Dawn and InspirED have planned in the future – we’re expecting great things!
