Animation workshops at Yorkhill hospital

I have now started leading a series of animation workshops with young people at Yorkhill hospital in Glasgow.

The hospital has a room called zone 12, where young people can go and spend time with other older patients and do fun things. It is run a bit like a youth club, with a range of activities on offer, and there is a supply of DVDs, games and books that the youths can borrow.

I have been brought in to show the children how to create their own animation, and we were  given the task of producing animations addressing the issue of recycling.

The first session went really well and the kids had a great time. It is pleasing to know that spending an hour with them can cheer them up no end.
