✨My Neighbour Totoro – shadowbox sculptures✨

Important Note: all Saturday courses will not be running on Saturday the 29th of July. This is because the Perth Comic Arts Festival will be running that weekend. We encourage all students to attend the Festival as it’s a fantastic opportunity to see the local comics community in action.

This term in Junior Art we will be exploring the wonderful world of Studio Ghibli’s beloved film My Neighbour Totoro, as we craft our way through a range of delightful creations.

Ghibli’s heartfelt films have defined Japanese animation for a generation, telling stories that seamlessly weave the magical with the everyday. Over the term, we will be inspired by their traditional animation techniques of layering images to create our own shadowboxes.

Using a variety of materials such as paint pens, gouache and acrylic sheets, we will design, transfer and render all the layers of necessary to create an illustration with real depth. In this course we will study figure drawing of characters, painting of landscapes and discover how this iconic animation studio achieve their signature style.

Saturday morning session runs at 9.30am – 11.00am from the 22nd of July until the 16th of September

This course is recommended for ages 7+
