Taking inspiration from the Themerson and Holmqvist exhibitions, this fun four day course offers children a unique opportunity to create their very own animations. We will explore the world of visual poetry to learn new techniques in photography, film, model and mark-making to create drawings that come to life. There will be an exhibition on the last day for parents and carers to attend.

Since graduating from Royal College of Art in 2013, she has exhibited at Marsden Woo Gallery and screened works at various international film festivals. Betsy has also collaborated with choreographers and set designers to make projections for the stage, such as Sum of Parts at Sadler’s Wells Theatre.
