Animation with IT Women Animation is a cool thing for technology. What my group did was illustrate where our character would be landing in the cartoon. We decided that our character would land in a colorful rainbow of mud. Also, the sky will be full of colors like blue, green, purple and pink. It will be windy with rocks rolling and grass swaying. That’s a little something that we put together. I also learned that animation can take a very long time to create. What I am going to do is learn more about 3D animation. This is going to interesting. I really enjoyed learning about animation.

Hiding Behind Eyes

Lonely life no friends

Behind the eyes where people can’t see

I feel I have to change the way I am I feel no one likes me! By Hanna Perry

You’ll find me I’m invisible Look at my face and I’ll give a smile However people don’t think They don’t see what’s right in front of them

Bullying Kids that are bullied should standup

I go everywhere But people are blind to what they can’t see Which is me

And say something

Because I hide behind eyes

By Myha-Simone Hall

By Kyerstein Ferreira


I Am Invisible

Pretending to be someone I’m not

Am I the bear who no one likes?

Desperate to follow the crowd So I won’t be left alone Trying to be a leader But

Do they see me? I’m so self-conscious about what they thought I cut my head with a pair of scissors Now everyone’s sad

No one wants to follow a

Maybe I wasn’t invisible after all
