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.

DARDANELE STUDIO www.dardanele.com

dardanele_logo

We are a team of creative people. We have been continuously sketching, drawing, animating and programming for the past 10 years and if you think that we are not doing anything at the moment then we must be thinking about a new project right now.

We are passionate about 2D animation, especially character animation.

We take on various projects in which animation is of key importance. Creating for kids is what we like the most: animated short films, educational series, video clips and applications – we always commit one hundred percent to everything we do. We like having a feeling that our project is not only prepared down to the last detail but that it is also useful and enjoyed by kids who have a lot of fun while learning.

 

Ewa Frączekewa-warsztaty-dla-dzieci2

 

She graduated from the Industrial Forms Department of the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow. She draws and animates and does a whole bunch of other useful things, too. She is a founder of Dardanele Studio where she creates illustrations and animations as part of her daily work.

Irina Goncharikirina-warsztaty-dla-dzieci2

She graduated from the department of journalism at the Belarusian State University in Minsk. Everyday in her work she creates fairytale worlds where strange, sometimes funny and at other times scary events take place. She writes scripts and comes up with new characters which are later brought to life by animators.

 

WORKSHOPS

We will invite children to play animated studio and work on a film together.

Our workshops will show how the process of creating an animated film looks like in a nutshell.

Children will get to know the secrets of animation making step by step, starting from an idea up to a completed film.

During workshops they will discover who really makes animated films: a director, scriptwriter, illustrator, animator, sound producer, editor and will also find out what a script, storyboard, frame, shot and editing are.

Working together on a film develops creativity, teaches how to work in a team and will quite possibly discover new talents or arouse passion to make animated films.
