animations with children

I am interested in children’s culture, visual narrative and creative play. I have worked on numerous residencies with children and I have been running stop-motion summer camps with children at Crawford Gallery, Cork since 2000

Works with children can be found on the mixadacat vimeo channel

Here are a few examples from various projects:

This animation arose from “Blending in and Standing out” a Virtually There Residency at Killard School, Donaghadee, Northern Ireland

another example of the Blending in //Standing out Layers project

This animation was made as part of an intergenerational project with Crawfrod Gallery at Togher Girls’ School and community, Cork

This animation is documenting artist’s response to drawing instructions from children as part of the Cave Hill Diamonds project with Virtually There at Our Lady of Lourdes School Belfast. Work from this exhibition toured to exhibition venues across Ireland
