An art workshop underway at one of last year's creative arts weeks
An art workshop underway at one of last year's creative arts weeks

Press Release - 15 February 2007

School students invited to four days of fun and film-making

Year 10 school students in Swindon have the chance to try their hand at film-making, in a free four-day workshop on animation at the University of Bath in Swindon.

Twenty-four students will be able to learn from animation professionals about storyboarding, character-making and sound effects. They will use plasticine or cut-out collage to create short animated films that will premiere to family and friends at the end of the four days.

The Amazing Animation Workshop will run from 2-5 April at the Oakfield campus from 10am-4pm. The closing date for applications is 1 March.

The free workshop is part of the University’s Creative Arts Week programme aimed at raising aspirations and participation in higher education. The programme gives young people the opportunity to try new activities in a higher education setting and to learn from undergraduates from the University about life as a student.

“The workshop is about getting young people involved in an exciting and imaginative art on the University campus,” said Anne Olesen, organiser of the workshop.

“It’s about starting early so that the University isn’t a foreign place to them and inspiring them to think about higher education when they leave school.

“Our university students can answer questions about life as a student and they can be role models for young people who might not have had the confidence or information to think about going on to university.”

This is the fourth year of Creative Art Weeks at the Oakfield campus.

The workshop is free of charge, including materials, lunch and refreshments. For more information or to book a place please call Anne Olesen on 01793 328800 or email
