Umbrella is an animation project involving Paul Kielty as lead artist, students from Derwen College, and also Oswestry’s wonderful Qube Gallery.

Paul Kielty, in the early part of 2020 worked with students at Derwen College – supporting them in creating animations.

The animation work is exhibited online at Qube Gallery, Oswestry – and longer term on youtube Fair Acre Press channel.

There were other plans in this project which were scuppered by the Coronavirus pandemic – but we are VERY proud of the students at Derwen College who really grasped the whole concept of how to make an animation. They were not creative studies students which make their achievements even more remarkable



See if YOU can do anything as good on your own mobile device! There is an eBook available to buy for £2.99 here – to help you make animations of your own



Paul has a degree in animation from the University of Wolverhampton. He co-ran digital art workshops at both Derwen College and Designs in Mind in the Painting by Pixels project
