About This Class
Hi, I am Cecile Noldus, I am a visual artist and an stop motion animator from the Netherlands. I make animated art films and children films. I use all kind of materials, any object I find, a spoon, a tin can, can inspire to make a character. This is a fun thing to do, and I want to share it with you.
In this course, we start from the base with free doodling and out of this intuitive information we can create a whole world of creatures! And it is your very own, unique world! I will show you how to create this kind of doodles and how to create characters step by step. I will give you insight in good materials to use for model building on a small budget. We will build a small model step by step. And since I like animation, I will put in little pieces of animation wherever I can!
The end product can be a small puppet, or a cool doodle . Let´s dive into our secret doodle world! Join me!

The class includes creativity prompts that are fun to follow. You do not need to create a 3D character, you can do it in paper with doodles and found objects.
Crafts & Doodles
Hi, I am Cecile Noldus, I am a visual artist and an stop motion animator from the Netherlands, currently living in Hamburg, Germany. I make animated art films and children films, for example for Sesame Street Germany and other programs. Recently I am working on my own project "Freddy´s Crazy Kitchen", an animated world in a kitchen. Since my childhood, I see creatures everywhere, in any form, any object. That is so much fun, giving an extra dimension to every day life. I hope to share it with you in upcoming workshops!
