This Week at Lawndale! 


(Animation Workshop with Seth Mittag)

Thursday, May 17, 2012
5:30-8:30 PM
Free (registration required due to limited space)

Only a few spaces left!  


Join 2011-2012 Lawndale Artist Studio Program participant Seth Mittag for a free Happy Hour workshop featuring two of Seth's many talents: Mojitos and Stop Motion.

Participants will be introduced to basic stop motion techniques such as storyboarding, filming and editing. During this workshop we will create a short animation using cut paper. We will also look at a few examples of more advanced puppets making techniques involving armature building and casting. The after party (Stop-all-Motion) will feature Ever-clear with a dash of food coloring!

Registration is requested as space is limited. Click here to register.
