TAAG’s “Animated Magic!” Big Draw Event
There’s a whole range of exciting activities taking place between 14-27 October at the Big Draw event at TAAG in Northumberland Place, Teignmouth!
This year’s theme is “Living Lines” – aka animation – so come along and watch animations made by local artists and children, and if you want to learn how to make your own animated films, join in with some of the fab workshop activities we’ve got lined up. There is something for everyone, whether you’re 2 or 102!
We’ll be open every day between 10am to 5pm showing animated films made by local artists and children specially for the Big Draw, and displaying “behind the scenes” and still images to give an insight into how the animations were made.
