Teams complete Virtual Art Programme

Posted on the 23rd September 2020

As part of our continued support to our young people despite the current pandemic, SCU ran our first ever Virtual Art Programme with girls from India, Brazil and Mauritius. The aim of the programme was to encourage the girls to learn about each other’s cultures and use art as a form of breaking down language barriers.

This programme was run alongside Artolution and over a five week period the girls learnt stop motion animation, clay character making and mask making.

Each team was tasked to create their own stop motion animation videos which were then combined to create one large animation video. The video created by the girls explored gender equality and peace in sport and all had a comment element of a pink and white football. Watch the final animation below:

Stay tuned for more virtual art programmes from SCU.
