Toyota Art Competition – During Home-Schooling
Our own 4th class pupil, Alannah entered into the Toyota ‘Build a better world’ Art Competition.Alannah made a 5 sec Stop Motion animation using her lego and she won the 8-11 year old category. The Theme was ‘Friends & Family’. Alannah gave the following description:
“The idea behind my stop motion animation was that even in the making of the art piece I felt happy to be thinking of what it will feel like to be able to enjoy getting back together to have fun with my friends and family. My animation is about the normal day to day activities that we sometimes take for granted and it’s only now we realise how special these times were”.
