Harnessing Children's Empathy Through Digital Art

ArtPlay encourages professional learning and the sharing of knowledge and ideas through our Artist Learning Progam. Our next public session, presented with Melbourne Knowledge Week, challenges concerns about the isolating effects of technology on children. Artist Georgie Pinn explains how her digital animation projects tap into children's natural empathy and curiosity. Mixing body motion tracking and facial recognition software with good old-fashioned collaborative creation, Georgie invites children to learn new multi-disciplinary skills and to negotiate shared ownership of their art.

This free presentation is open to anyone working in the arts with children but please note that it is only for adults.
Bookings essential.
