Photos covered by copyright, made available only for the implementation of the workshop "Put a pandemic into the film" as part of the Etiuda & Anima festival.

During online classes the participants will learn the arcana of cartoon animation (2D), and with the use of a special application they will create a short film in this technique. In safe homes, every child will familiarize themselves in an easy and practical way with the basics of cartoon animation and will create their own short animation.

The young participants will have a chance to tell about their experiences connected with the pandemic. We wish to give them an art therapeutic tool to find out how children react to the virus, how they feel when kept indoors, what they think about home schooling, about their fears triggered by the hazards threatening their parents and grandparents, and about other things affecting them and their families in this time.

The classes will start with a short conversation and introduction into cartoon animation and computer techniques. Depending on the participants` level and skills, they will make simple animations, for example of a falling leaf, a rain drop, a flying bird or a cloud, or more sophisticated ones with a few elements and form transformations (for example changing a leaf into a more magical character).

The workshops will be run by Justyna Jakóbowska.
