Cultuuronderwijs op zijn Haags (The Hague cultural education) makes it possible for children in The Hague’s primary schools to experience culture and challenges them to visualize their ideas. Going through creative processes and visiting cultural activities leads to valuable experiences and discoveries.
Assigned by CultuurSchakel, Motoko developed a series of animations to be shown in the classrooms of primary schools. Entiteld “De Haagse Ladekast” (The Hague’s Drawer), these animations will be played on a smartboard at the beginning of a lesson in arts and culture.
In this pilot, Motoko created four animations to be used in the classroom. Themed “Onze Stad” (Our City), covering arts and culture in the city The Hague, each animation is targeted at a specific age group. Furthermore, Motoko created an explainer video for school boards and teachers, clarifying the goal and function of this program.
The development of this series includes not only the animation production but also the design of the visual style and several characters. Amongst others, we designed characters for several age groups. Each character is targetted at a specific age of children and plays the lead role in one of the animations.
