SOLIHULL-BASED animation tutor, Lee Skinner, will be exhibiting his work at 'Artsfest' on September 13.

Lee has inspired many, establishing an animation school that has facilitated for over 80 workshops for schools within the West Midlands.

Schools such as Daylesford Infant School and Lighthall School are just two which have experienced the craftsmanship of Lee's work.

Lee has also written, directed and animated four professional films.

Despite training in computer animation, traditional animation techniques, such as cell and clay, are the essence of both Lee's professional work and the school workshops.

After providing for numerous workshops, he was requested to show fourteen of his workshop films at this weekend's Artsfest in Birmingham.

The Custard Factory Theatre in Digbeth will host a series of film, talks and events throughout the day on Saturday September 13.

The feature will include a small insightful presentation and a workshop for school teachers.

Examples of films that Lee has created with Solihull Schools can be viewed online at www.youtube.com/lpskinner.
