Stop-Motion Animation Workshop (for Kids)

Saturday, December 9, 2017, 2:00 - 3:00 pm
291 Church Street, NYC

Learn how to make your own stop motion animation videos in this afternoon workshop run by Chris Mariano.

This workshop is best suited for children ages 5-12, who must be accompanied by a guardian.

This event is free and open to the public. RSVP required.

This workshop provides an introduction to how animations are made through stop motion. Participants will look at some classic examples of stop-motion animation to understand the process, techniques, and effects before making an animation of their own.

Chris Mariano is the co-author and co-creator of the children's book and board game Claire Lost Her Bear at the World’s Fair, due out in April 2018 from Polar Press. He is also a lead pop culture archaeologist for the website wonderweird.net and a workshop presenter for Kids Love Comics, an organization that aims to help kids (and parents) create using their imaginations. When he is not busy running workshops or digging up pop-culture past, he's watching an episode of Saved by the Bell, playing music, or just using his imagination.
