In this workshop, kids will bring stories to life by exploring various stop-motion animation techniques. Using a range of materials, the animators will create their very own puppets and backgrounds to be used to create an animated short film. At the end of the 6-week workshop, we will screen our films, and kids can take home any characters or sets that they created. Haley Shibble is an artist and educator based in Brooklyn.
