Announcing the FIRST ever ‘Collaborative Online Animation Project for Children in India & Poland’
Two Countries: India and Poland
Two Studios: Children’s Art Centre, Poznan & Toon Club

Two Groups: each group: 5 Indian and 5 Polish kids
Group 1 (6:00pm IST)
Led by Miłosz Margański, University of Arts Poznan
Due to the fact that animation is the art of reviving, during the workshops we will learn together how to “revive” objects in our nearest surroundings. Is all we need a spoon and a fork to tell the immortal love story of Romeo and Juliet? Thanks to the use of stop-motion, everything that was previously a boring object of everyday use can become a hero of an exciting story. We will learn the secrets of classic animation techniques, and learn how to use our smartphone to become a real “wizard” of cinema. Let’s check together how little it takes to experience a real film adventure.
The participant’s task will be to familiarize themselves with the prepared educational material, and to use the techniques discussed in the film in independent experiments.

Benefits for Students
Research shows that Animation appeals to multiple intelligences and a broad variety of learners. Creating a animation movie allows students to use their artistic and creative talents to communicate and tell a story.
- Creative Writing and Language skills are engaged while writing the script. Principles of storytelling, story structure, characters and settings help children express themselves and experiment.
- Mathematical, logical, and spatial skills are used in organizing the visual project, sequencing the frames, timing and spacing drawings.
- Science and Physics: Children apply the laws of the natural world to their animation. Persistence of vision, cameras /projection technology, laws of movement, velocity, gravity and metamorphosis are scientific principles that children are exposed to while understanding the principles of animation.
- Art and Creativity is encouraged when students draw and animate their stories applying aesthetic principles of design, composition, contrast and visual symbols.
- Motor skills: hand-eye coordination and the ability to repeat a drawing.
