Workshops consist of two parts, theoretical and practical. On the first day, we describe the most important issues related to animation and painting murals. Presentation of the principles of building the most important and attractive movements in animation (illustration, puppet and 3D animation) will be made to participants of workshops. We will show short animations of murals, animated video clips and artists’ GIFs. Afterwards, participants will create their own stories, which they will draw in storyboard, an in the practical part – they will paint them on the wall.
