A 4hour long workshop for high school students.
The objective of this workshop is to engage students in the construction of 3d characters from wire, combined with different materials such as paper. These characters will have a height of about 14 cm, and the participants will give them life by means of Stop Motion techniques.
The aim is to give the participants the opportunity to create their own three-dimensional fictional characters and in doing so to discover their own creativity through the Euclidean space. The end result will be a short video comprising all the students’ work.
Requirements for this workshop: Senior high school students with an aptitude for the Arts.
