PATHWAYS: 3rd level taster for secondary school students- BA (Hons) in Animation and Illustration in TUS Athlone

“Seeing Sound” Animation Workshop

Led by Yvonne Hennessy, animation lecturer in the Technological University of the Shannon (TUS Athlone Campus), the ‘Seeing Sound’ workshop looks at how music can be visual. Using drawn shapes and colour the participants of the workshop focus on breakdown down sound into visual representations of the music. These visuals are animated to the timing of the music and when played from the beginning the outcome is an animated film which hits all the beats of the track.

This 2-hour workshop is suitable for participants aged 16+ with an interest in drawing, music and who have good computer skills.
