Scarlet Sykes-Hesterman shared her stop motion skills with Anglesea kids on Sunday at a favourite artistic venue from her own childhood.

“My grandmother lives in Anglesea, so I’ve come down since I was born and I’ve been going to the Anglesea Art House since I was a kid,” she said.

The 23-year-old completed a bachelor of animation and interactive media at RMIT in 2018 and was thrilled to teach local kids using colourful Otway-themed backdrops and figurines.

“We taught them how to create stop motion on their phone,” she said.

“They had two hours from start to finish to come up with an idea for a story or character and make their own video.

“One of the really nice things about helping these kids was reliving that childhood memory of having fun and creating something.”

The Kids Art Bash workshops, run by the Independent’s own Rebecca Hosking, return to Anglesea Art House today and run until Sunday.
