Through animation

we help children to get creative. Children learn new art techniques, add them to their existing skills, present their original works, acquire information in new ways, develop conceptual thinking and deal with the challenges of cooperation.

  • Self-esteem and self-presentation are enhanced, among other things, by focusing on the final project output e.g. a performance. Children stop copying others and create their own opinions and works. Positive impact on children’s self-esteem.
  • Improving cooperation – teachers and children feel the difference. The new findings about classmates contribute to bringing the team together. The group can then effectively use individuals’ abilities and is able to make the most of their potential as a team.
  • Improving the social climate goes hand in hand with improved cooperation between children and teachers.
  • Independence – greater children’s autonomy supports relaxed atmosphere full of curiosity, joy and without any potential fears. • Improving relationship with teachers

Animation as the old-time medium of the visual world can be found in all framework educational programs, especially for the subjects of Culture and Art – Art and Media Education (both a separate subject and a cross-sectional theme). However, it can also be used very well as an interdisciplinary or project linker.
