Setting Up

Workshop with Year 6 Pupils

We invited a local primary school, Morley Memorial, to visit and see some of the animations and have a go at making animations.

Live Link to the Baltic, Newcastle

The teenagers had a live link with teachers from primary and secondary schools attending a teacher meeting at the Baltic Arts Centre. They showed the props, answered questions and talked about art education.
