Animation is an artistic expression and emotional energy in motion.

It can help to uncover emotions through storytelling and aesthetics. It can be used both, to teach any curriculum subject at schools and as a therapeutic tool to encourage mediation: positive social values such as resilience to cope with changes and challenges of everyday life. The application of emotional intelligence studied by Howard Gardner, Daniel Goleman and Linda Lantieri; the affective neuroscience from the Mindsight institute of Daniel Siegel from California and the use of the Stoic philosophy of Epictetus (the art of living) support and enable the positive effects of the creative process of animation having scientific justification and in turn, these sciences can be apply through this art.
The animation is from this perspective an opportunity for self-development, to connect with the true self so with others. It is perfect for children with autism and communication problems or deficiencies in working forms of verbal and non-verbal expression challenges.

History is our memories, our experiences or stories which are the base of our identity.

The visual narrative is an expression of emotions, feelings that help us to connect with ourselves and with others, to understand better the outer and inner world in order to live a healthy and happy way, learning by playing.
Our brain is evolutionary structured to think-create- re-create stories in our minds for each lived experience. We identify and feel empathy for the activation of the insula region of the brain (see Uri Hasson, Princeton) which allows us to feel what the narrator tells us (synchronized brains). The art therapy studies of Linda Chapman corroborate us that the arts are the key to access the right hemisphere of the brain, guardian of the physical and emotional traumatic memories, feelings and thoughts (Dr.Dan Siegel) which can be visually expressed. Note that kinesthetic and sensory activities activate the right hemisphere, followed by the limbic system, and prefrontal cognitive structures. Storytelling connects both hemispheres of the brain activating several areas.
