STUDIO DA

St.Petersburg (Russia)

DA animation studio is a volunteer charity project that was started in 2008. A team of directors, artists, animators, psychologists and educators conduct regular cartoon animation workshops for children in challenging life situations.

Children and adults creating an animation film together is a very special art therapy method.  As the children make up the script, draw and animate characters and record sound they tune into the creative process which plays a very important role in providing psychological support for a child dealing with a crisis.

Over a hundred children are now involved with the studio: children undergoing long-term hospital treatment, patients of the St. Petersburg children's hospice, children with cognitive dysfunction, orphans, disabled chidden.

Along with conducting animation workshops, our studio actively participates in children-oriented cultural events. Professional directors and animators of two leading animation studios share their experience with children, organize master-classes for volunteers and educators, assist in opening new studios in other cities.

The adult team of the studio also creates socially oriented animation films, such as "A little bit" and the videoclip about socially responsible business .

To date, the studio holds 12 classes per week.
