The vision of Toonworld is simple we Encourage, Empower, Educate and Entertain kids through interactive workshops that are both fun and creative. These workshops are designed to improve communication and literacy while channelling creativity and imagination. We invite your students to join us in discovering the exciting world of Stop Motion Animation and experience the magic of film production.
Toonworld’s workshops are offered nationwide in schools, vacation care centres, shopping centres and children’s festivals around the world.
Toonworld Animation Workshops are great for building skills in literacy, numeracy, learning teamwork and an effective way of introducing STEM into the curriculum. Generally schools book into our animation programs to fulfil the storytelling or animation unit in the curriculum or just for a reward to hardworking students
Each 1.5 hour workshop we can have up to 35 kids with packages that can cater to any size school or centre. The Animation workshops are fun simple and exciting children aged from 5-15 learn the simple hints and tips on how to Animate effectively & everyone will get to construct their own cool clay characters that they can take home and make their own movies!
HOW WE DO IT?
Animation is all about Creativity and Interactivity and heaps of FUN!
We first give the Children a fun presentation on the step by step techniques to making their own plasticine character then how to use the simple software, we then split into groups to create our themed backgrounds, props and design a story to go with their heroes.
Then it's LIGHTS! CAMERA! ANIMATE !!!
Using Ipads and easy to learn software the teams are creating Instantly! and learning the ideal style to produce an effective sequence in the process.
We add some cool narration and sounds and then upload all their movies to the channel of their choosing so their friends and family can marvel at their masterpieces.
Toonworld Supplies everything for the workshop we just need 5-6 tables
WE GO ANIMATING MAD ALL OVER AUSTRALIA AND THE WORLD !!!
Some Feedback from Schools and OSHC centres and students
Each Year our Year 3 students complete a unit of study on animations. This unit is a part of our STEAM program. For quite a few years we have travelled from our school in Geelong to Melbourne to take part in an excursion learning about the art of animating. That was until last year when we found Toonworld. Now we have the Toonworld's team, come to our school and our students are involved in hands-on animation workshops with them. These animation workshops are so beneficial and we use them as a catalyst for our animation program. The students learn how to create characters, settings and scripts. They have the opportunity to record their animation using the provided iPads and then at the end of the day showcase all of their work to their families. If you were thinking of teaching your students how to create animations, then I would highly recommend that you use Toonworlds to introduce the concept to your students.

Thank you for such an enjoyable workshop!!!!!!!!! Your infectious enthusiasm ensured that the children would have a great afternoon. Claudio, you managed to capture all the children's imagination under pressing conditions and I am grateful for your amiable patience. We had a very big group and each child contributed to the workshop. This was evident when children were collected from the program and they were absolutely glowing in their appraisal of the workshop to their parents. Not only to did you bring the passionate fervour, you provided all the equipment and knowledge that guaranteed a successful day. I look forward to using Toonworld again in the very near future.

Toonworld's visit was super fun, exciting and engaging! The children learnt new skills and discussed how their favourite TV shows were made. They loved creating their own characters and mini clips and those who had to leave early were begging their parents to stay - well done!
