Dora’s work with children has, among many film festivals, been shown at the National Gallery, the Barbican Cinema and the Museum of London.
Traditional artistic skills such as drawing, painting and model-making are all put to use), plus children learn how new technologies can be used to create something original. By creating short animated films, students boost their computer skills, learn to edit simple audio and operate basic animation software, but they also find out about the art techniques needed to create characters and scenery. A big part of these projects is having the kids work as a team. Their cooperation is like a massive mosaic: they learn how to create characters and scenery from their own imagination, then how to put all these elements together to result in a collaborative animated film.
