Over three exciting days, participants will watch the inspiring short film, create their own books, paint rock characters, and bring them to life through stop-motion animation.
Day 1 kicks off with the screening of “Luce and the Rock,” followed by a craft activity where participants create a coloring book of the story. They’ll then envision their own hometowns, inhabitants, and new friends, exploring similarities and differences with the characters.
Day 2 focuses on painting rocks to bring characters and villages to life. Participants will experiment with designs and movements, fostering creativity and critical thinking.
Day 3, participants will learn the art of stop-motion animation, animating their rock characters and capturing their stories frame by frame. This workshop promises an unforgettable journey into imagination, storytelling, and artistic expression.
