Staff, students, teachers and animators convened at the 'Old Foyer Gallery' at Bower Ashton campus, UWE Bristol to celebrate the launch of the Flick-Flip-Flick project with an exhibition of 15 flip books designed by Aardman animations staff.

Professional animators from Aardman have worked with the Centre for Fine Print Research at UWE to produce new flick books. These flick books demonstrate a range of innovative techniques including: hand drawn, painted, 3D modelling, stop motion, photography and CGI, the animators have worked with researchers from the Centre for Fine Print Research at UWE to explore new technologies such as laser cutting and UV digital presses. Each new work was printed as both an A1 print and made into a book and were exhibited at the Bower Ashton Campus 4 - 15 October 2010.

Alongside the exhibition, Flick-Flip-Flick continuing professional development courses offer the opportunity for teachers from schools and colleges across the region to develop their art, design and media skills and to develop links with creative arts and technologies which can will inform innovation in teaching and learning in Art, Design and Media. Teachers taking part in the project also have the opportunity to participate in an exhibition programme in 2011 exhibiting the work they create alongside the work of leading creative industry professionals. The project also enables pupils and staff to take part in the development and delivery of an internationally touring exhibition and events programme.

The one-day courses will be delivered by print research specialists from the Centre for Fine Print Research at UWE who have extensive experience of delivering art, design and technology focused CPD to artist and designer teaching professionals, working alongside an accredited Educator-Practitioner Ross Wallis with extensive and current experience of development and innovation in teaching art, design & technology in schools. Ross is an Apple Distinguis Education Leader.

The Flick-Flip-Flick project is suitable for participation from pupils at all levels of education, as the teacher participating in the project and CPD programme will work directly with their own students to tailor the project for them.
