From teaching basic flip-book animation right through to producing an animated film, there are drawing templates for the less confident artists and tried-and-tested schemes of work, plus advice on how to use animation equipment and what technology and software is available. This practical, cross-curricular resource is particularly suitable for use with students aged 11-16, although many of the activities can be adapted for older or younger students. It can be used in Art, Media Studies, ICT and many other subjects to engage learners of all styles and abilities.
