Beginners Animation Workshop: 6 - 10 years (Numbers strictly limited.)
A fantastic intro for kids to learn the essentials of animating with LEGO.
Get started on Lego stop motion – and although for beginners students can go as far as they wish as instructions are handed out for also doing more advanced animating.
Will I need to bring anything? Bring along your iPad from home if you have one. Otherwise, iPads can be supplied to students who sign up.

"My name is Tim and I came to your animation workshop a few months ago at Screenies in Auckland. Just to let you know that I made an animation film like you taught me and I got a prize in the Outlook For Someday Film Competition. It's called Stuart the Penguin and you can see it on Stuff under entertainment/film section. Thanks for teaching me."
