About this Event

In this youth workshop inspired by Louise Bourgeois' series of holograms, artist Caitlin Thompson will teach participants how to create movement through the optical illusion of the phenakistoscope, looping animations and GIFs. Using simple movements, drawing and cut-outs, your designs and invented characters will come alive!

In order to participate in the digital animation section of this workshop, you will need to be able to take a photo (with a smartphone or camera) or scan of your work, and upload it to your computer. Participation in this section is not required.

Kits with workshop materials will be available for pickup at Esker Foundation (1011 9th Ave. SE, Inglewood) prior to the workshop. Details will be provided after registration.

Recommended for teens. This workshop will happen online. FREE!
