Eric Joyner Inspired Robot Marionette & Movie

This week started the first week of camp at Little Tree Studios.  Our week's project was to write a script for a marionette movie using 2 of Eric Joyner's fantasy paintings.  Each of the 3 groups had 5 Little Artists to collaborate with in creating the characters, backdrops and props for the movie. The first day we wrote the stories using these paintings.

Group one named their  movie, Team Robots and the Eaterbug using these two paintings.

The next two days, Little Artists drew their plans for creating their robots and got to work. Recycled items, plaster and soup cans were the materials used in making each robot. Each robot was named and had a part in one of the three movies.

Special thanks to all the families who donated little pieces of amazing junk,  and a huge thank you to all the teachers who guided the little artists through this very busy week. Be sure to congratulate your Little Movie Makers they worked VERY HARD! Learning to move the marionettes, say their voice overs and come up with their parts is a lot to do in 5 days- Way to go Little Artists!!

Here are the links to all the movies-Enjoy!
