About this program
Choose a story that needs to be heard and animate it. In the first sessions, Jacqui will guide students through the steps and structural elements to build a story. By the end of the session, your short story will be recorded and ready to be animated. In the second session, Tina will introduce students to the 2D animation process and techniques, including character and background design. Students will create their animation, which Tina will then merge with the recorded audio. The finished product is a story created by your class, told by a professional storyteller, and animated in a fun and educational way. This is a great workshop for your history class!
