Stop-Motion Animation Workshop

February 18, 2019 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm Griswold House

Join us for a selection of beautiful animated short films with the Providence Children's Film Festival, followed by hands-on stop motion animation workshops led by our Museum educators!

Following the morning film, join us for an exciting hands-on foray into the world of stop-motion animation. We will talk about what stop-motion is, and what kind of story it can tell. We will look at an example of a simple, homemade stop motion short, then children will use model magic to make characters and bring their imagination to life in a short video! All ages welcome.

Space is limited, register today!

The Museum shares PCFF’s belief in the power of film to expand minds and open hearts to the world around us. We are thrilled to partner with PCFF to bring these important films to our community. Whether you’re a child, young adult, parent, educator, film lover, or film professional, there is inspiration and food for thought here. We’ll see you at the Museum!
