Tiny Circus collaborated with over 50 elementary and high school art teachers over the course of 3 days at the Art Educators of Iowa Conference in October 2013. The voices featured in the animation are real art teachers from all over the state of Iowa who talk about the importance of art education and describe why the art classroom can be a very special and place.
This project was conceived after being inspired by the techniques seen at the Art Educators Conference this fall. 'Tiny Circus', a collaborative video group, explained how to create movies using stop action animation.
This project was put together with the help of more than a dozen students in my art classes, and will be a reoccurring lesson to teach technology in the art classroom. I'd like to Thank everyone that was involved, students, teachers, and friends for your support and guidance. Thank You! I hope you enjoy the video.
