Stop Motion Animation Class

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~THIS IS AN ONGOING CLASS AND MEETS DEC. 6th and 20th, Jan. 3rd, 17th and 31st, and Feb. 14th and 28th. If you cannot attend all dates, please contact Erin Robinson: erinr@derrypl.org~~~~~~~~~~~

This hands-on class teaches the step-by-step process of creating stop motion animation, from the making of flexible characters out of clay, all the way to the completion of a finished scene. Using more modern frame grabbing technology to capture images, students will be able to see their progress each day.

This program will be led by Tim Smyth. Tim is a professional stop motion animator who has animated on the TV shows “Celebrity Deathmatch,” “The P’J’s,” “Blake Shelton’s Not So Family Christmas,” and “A Very Pentatonix Christmas,” as well as TV and Web spots like Visine, and KRE-O toys. Tim grew up (more or less) in Haverhill, Massachusetts, and was inspired to get into stop motion and filmmaking when he was very young, after a viewing of the 1933 film “King Kong.”

Evening Craft Club

Help us ring in the new year with these fun wine glass "drink markers" that double as coasters! You'll never have to worry about whether you've grabbed someone else's drink again!

The best part of this craft is how easy and customizable it is: we'll use felt and fabric glue to create these fun drink markers that you can re-use over and over (for every party!). Each attendee can make four different markers.

As always, if you have a special color scheme in mind, we recommend that you bring your supplies. Otherwise, we'll provide all that you need, including scissors, felt, and glue.

We'll also be introducing you to our newest database, JOANN's new CreativeBug! We invite you to check it out prior to the program (if you'd like); find the link here. You'll need your library card to sign in. 

Registration is required for this program using our online calendar, or give us a call at (603) 432-6140

Stop Motion Animation Class

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~THIS IS AN ONGOING CLASS AND MEETS DEC. 6th and 20th, Jan. 3rd, 17th and 31st, and Feb. 14th and 28th. If you cannot attend all dates, please contact Erin Robinson: erinr@derrypl.org~~~~~~~~~~~

This hands-on class teaches the step-by-step process of creating stop motion animation, from the making of flexible characters out of clay, all the way to the completion of a finished scene. Using more modern frame grabbing technology to capture images, students will be able to see their progress each day.

This program will be led by Tim Smyth. Tim is a professional stop motion animator who has animated on the TV shows “Celebrity Deathmatch,” “The P’J’s,” “Blake Shelton’s Not So Family Christmas,” and “A Very Pentatonix Christmas,” as well as TV and Web spots like Visine, and KRE-O toys. Tim grew up (more or less) in Haverhill, Massachusetts, and was inspired to get into stop motion and filmmaking when he was very young, after a viewing of the 1933 film “King Kong.”

This hands-on class teaches the step-by-step process of creating stop motion animation, from the making of flexible characters out of clay, all the way to the completion of a finished scene.

Stop Motion Animation Class

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~THIS IS AN ONGOING CLASS AND MEETS DEC. 6th and 20th, Jan. 3rd, 17th and 31st, and Feb. 14th and 28th. If you cannot attend all dates, please contact Erin Robinson: erinr@derrypl.org~~~~~~~~~~~

This hands-on class teaches the step-by-step process of creating stop motion animation, from the making of flexible characters out of clay, all the way to the completion of a finished scene. Using more modern frame grabbing technology to capture images, students will be able to see their progress each day.

This program will be led by Tim Smyth. Tim is a professional stop motion animator who has animated on the TV shows “Celebrity Deathmatch,” “The P’J’s,” “Blake Shelton’s Not So Family Christmas,” and “A Very Pentatonix Christmas,” as well as TV and Web spots like Visine, and KRE-O toys. Tim grew up (more or less) in Haverhill, Massachusetts, and was inspired to get into stop motion and filmmaking when he was very young, after a viewing of the 1933 film “King Kong.”
