How to draw cartoons.

Children can get awfully animated during the half term; excitement and energy levels soar to heights that you might have only thought possible from the likes of Daffy Duck. Over the October half time, The Cartoon Museum is offering the opportunity to let kids transfer some of that kinetic mojo into their own cartoon character. Workshops will include classes in animation, comics, and drawing techniques.

Claymation Workshop

Ever wondered how Wallace & Gromit was made? Create characters out of modelling clay, then animate them to create a short film.

Using the same techniques as Terry Gilliam for Monty Python, create a short funny film.

Chalk Animation
