Paper Making Workshop: “Each One Teach Two”

Claudio Orso will set up a hands on workshop for people of all ages to make beautiful handmade colorful paper. He will provide the supplies and teach this exciting hands on inclusive process that will allow each new learner to teach their friends. The handmade paper that is produced will dry overnight and will be used in the Stop-Motion Animation workshop the next day. (approx. 2-3 hours)

Tuesday, June 4, 4:00 - 7:00pm

Storytelling Workshop with Stop-Motion Animation

Using the paper that they made the day before participants of any age can start with writing a short poem or story about their family or their neighborhood. We will do a hands-on demonstration using our cameras and stop-motion animation software. We will have them record their story with audio recorders and have teams help to animate the images of  their short story or poem using paper, paint, toys, fabrics, buttons, glitter, tape, yarn, flowers and our huge array of art supplies and fun gadgets. This activity is open for all ages. It allows for many kinds of entry points into the process, visual, aural, and artistic without the need to overwhelm with complex technology. (approx. 2-3 hours)

Wednesday, June 5, 4:00 - 7:00pm

PlayTime!  Workshop with Green Screen

Playtime! is a hands on media making and improv workhop we have done for many years as an after school program for all ages. We will set up Stop Motion animation stations and a big portable“Green Screen” and cameras and costumes which will allow for for participants to film some fun fantastical scenes, and then be able to “insert” their own backgrounds. (approx. 2-3 hours)
