EZxploring Art Workshops with Leitrim Design House

  • Workshop

If you could transport yourself to anywhere in the universe, real or imagined, where would you go?

Dioramas have been used since the early 19th century for entertainment and as educational tools in museums and galleries. EZxploring, through a series of online workshops, will show children how to build a diorama based on the above theme and bring it into the 21st century by making a simple animation with it.

Participants will learn:

History of dioramas

Current uses of dioramas

Different types of dioramas

How to tell a story through a diorama

How to build a diorama using easy to access materials

How to animate a diorama using a free to download animation app

Bookings will take place online through the Leitrim Design House website from May the 25th.
