Lasha Mowchun has taught film and stop motion animation to kids throughout Manitoba for almost a decade. Students work in teams to create animations, music videos, documentaries, etc. At the end of every project Lasha organizes a show of all the films, so students can take pride in their work with the rest of their school.
Lasha has worked with numerous programs including the Engaging Fusion Program (Winnipeg School Division), Freeze Frame, Graffiti Art Programming and more.
Lasha has been very successful in introducing animation to our students and helping them make short films. Lasha’s gentle and positive manner has allowed her to quickly build a friendly rapport with students. Lasha knows how to connect with young learners. She explains instructions in a way that kids can understand. It is our pleasure to have met Lasha. It is obvious that she cares about what she does. We would look forward to bringing her back to the school in the future.

Lasha provided a fun and educational experience for students at our school. Her project connected with students and made a lasting impact. Many of the students here are still making short animation videos at home!
