ANIMATION PROJECT – VERNON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL B.C.

I am delighted to present below the results of a children’s animation project conducted with Grade 3/4, Vernon Elementary School, Vernon, B.C. Canada 2013.   Stemming from the initiative of teacher Candice Young, 23 children created action drawings to send to me to animate.   

I wish to thank Candice for this interaction, which was so enjoyable by all.  I also wish to thank you, the children, who put so much care and imagination into your drawings.  I hope you will be inspired in the future to learn more about the wonderful creative world of illustration, cartooning & animation.

I am showing each animation in slow and faster speeds, so that you can see each change in movement and how they become smoother as they are sped up.   All of these animations are set on a “loop” which means they repeat the action over and over. Names and ages of the children are shown before each picture:

  1. You really make it seem so easy together with your presentation however I in finding this topic to be really one thing which I believe I might by no means understand.
    It seems too complex and very wide for me. I am looking
    forward on your next put up, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

    • Thanks for your comment. This school project on animation is just to demonstrate what simple animation can do for a child’s drawing. Children might then later be encouraged to learn more using a basic animation program. There are others on http://www.kidsfuncorner.com which show the initial pencil drawings as well.
