Schools: Get Animated
Perfect for school tours, this fun and engaging animation workshop experience can be delivered in English or as Gaeilge. For 3rd-6th Class
Over the course of the session, your class will learn about the process of making animated films. They will discover some of the stages involved in the making of Cartoon Saloon’s feature film Song of the Sea, and will then create their own sea themed animations.
Before the workshop, your class will be given a short tour of our Song of the Sea exhibition. Full of original drawings, prints, storyboards and animation, this exhibition provides an imaginative and accessible insight into the movie-making process. This is a chance to find out what was involved in creating an Academy Award® nominated film!
In the workshop, each child will participate in three different animation activities with animators from Paper Panther Productions led by Pádraig Fagan.
