About the workshop

Last time, 13 students of 5th to 9th grade took part in the Animation Workshop 2015.

For most students, this was their first time to create an animation. They worked hard together for all the 4 days to make out a 2-minute animation - creating the story, designing characters, drawing animation one by one, coloring and then, shooting them.

When their animation was previewed finally at the end of the fourth day, students were so thrilled and excited with joy watching it.
