Tagtool travels part 1 – in Germany

In the past couple of weeks we have been travelling in Germany, Slovakia and the Czech Republic – so there has been no time for me to write up the blog till now!
On 26 September we took all our Tagtool equipment to Leipzig where we had been invited by our friend Katrin Rothe for a five day Tagtoolworkshop for school students to be held at naTo.
For all of the students this was the first time they had seen the Tagtoool – and needless to say it was an immediate hit with all the group! After they had had some time to play with the colours and learn how to animate their drawings, they began to work in groups on the topic of their set project – ‘Saxony and the Saxonians’.
Everyone worked really hard, and on the last day of the workshop the students put on a performance which included live music, narrative and Tagtool animation – in front of an audience of their parents and teachers.Introducing drawing and animation using the Tagtool to these 17 year old students was a new and most enjoyable experience for us. Also, I learned a lot about Saxony and the Saxonians – and the Tagtool certainly found some new friends in Leipzig!

    Hey Frances. I hope you remember this Project. I was playing the clarinet 😉
    I think you made some good photos of me, while i played in front of the tagtool and someone else painted around me. I wanted to ask, if you still have this photos. If yes, it would be great, when you can send them by e-mail to me.
