Puppetry Family Workshop –- 2nd part – families of students in grades Pre-K, K & 1

We had a wonderful attendance this past Tuesday and we hope to see you back for the second part of Flip’s Fantastic Journal workshop with Angelo DeCesare. All participants created a pop-up box and their own 3D character. They are looking forward to attach a door that opens and closes to reveal their character and to fill out their blank journal booklet with a related story.

Animation Family Workshops – families of students in grades 2 & 3

A 2-session animation project

Have you ever wished to make your own animation film? Well, it’s a long road to get there, but how about start with something as easy as a short video with items moving around? Come on Tuesday and learn how to make and share short creative videos using bits of paper that will come to life under your own eyes. You and your child will learn and explore the power of stop-motion animation. Learn these valuable techniques and have lots of fun telling a story in a new and exciting way!
