Want to learn how to make art out of recycled plastic and paper, and bring it to life?
Ryde Council is offering budding animators free, creative workshops, with a professional tutor, to help them develop innovative artworks for SWAP – the City of Ryde’s annual Sustainable Waste2Art Prize (SWAP).
The first workshop is a Paper Cut and Plastics Animation workshop, starting on Tuesday 20 May. The workshops run for three week and you can attend one or as many workshops as you like.
Digital-media artist Craig Bunker will show you how to make a short animation with your laptop, smartphone or iPad, using recycled plastic and paper. You can then enter your artwork in the SWAP competition and be in the running for prizes totaling more than $3,800.
Plastic animation is a form of stop motion animation, which brings inanimate objects to life. Paper cut animation is a similar process using paper, found objects and drawing. Music, sounds and editing can be added to the process.
SWAP 1 Workshop: 3 weeks – Tuesday nights 20, 27 May and 3 June,
6.00-9.00pm, West Ryde Community Hall, 3-5 Anthony Road, West Ryde
Materials: Basic materials will be supplied but bring along any special recycled items you with to include in your artwork.
Tutor Craig Bunker is an experienced trainer in all forms of digital media. He is also the uncanny Bunkwaa—a Sydney based street artists and comic book maker. His iconic style can be found around Melbourne, Adelaide and the inner west scapes of Sydney.
