Cartoon / animation artists needed!!!

If you would be interested in designing cartoon characters which will be used for animation and video purposes for Primary Language teaching please see Mrs Nicklin as soon as possible in Modern Languages (D11).

I am looking for 4 characters to be drawn and then they will come alive and be animated to make German language videos for Primary School pupils in East Renfrewshire. The design of the characters can be your own ideas!
