Teaching Animation (8)

During the summer holidays I held an animation workshop at the Museum MARTa Herford which is a museum for contemporary art, design and architecture.

Do you know the joke about The Two Tomatoes? The fi rst one says, “Hello, Tomato!” and starts crossing the street. It gets hit by a car, and the other one says, “Hello, Ketchup!”

As usual, we used plasticine, paper, cardboard, watercolors, scissors and glue and last but not least our phantasy. I really love animation workshops with kids, they’re so creative and not afraid of failing at all…
