We will show students and teachers work (David Gregory, Joanna Brown, Liam Nunn and Abbey Austin) to demonstrate different disciplines and use of various programs and tools.

How traditional techniques of drawing, storytelling and animation underpin the use of technology.

David will be demonstrating programs and equipment, showing what can be achieved and what options are available from high end set ups to ipad and pens which are great value and can be used as sketchpads or for finer detailed work.
