Do you want to make your own Lego movie or claymation video? During the Stop Motion Animation workshop, July 18-20, you will create your own stop motion video; develop your storyline, background, and characters and then we will use our digital devices to bring it all to life!

In week two, July 25-27, participants will create Metal Tape and Wire Mesh Sculptures - build a framework with wire mesh and wrap it with metal tape to make an amazing sculpture. Work will be large and stand on its own. Pick your own choice of subject or just play with abstract shapes to develop your own style.

During week 3, August 1-3, create your own alter ego in collage form during the Surrealistic/Steam Punk Collages workshop. Check out artist Robert Gullie's fantastic collages for inspiration! We'll use existing imagery and add designs in the background.

The final week, August 8-10, we will be Printmaking with Gelli Plates. Create beautiful, one of a kind prints using gelli plates. Enjoy immediate gratification and have a stack of amazing prints in no time and then experiment by combining, layering, adding paint, stencils, and texture.
