On Saturday, Dec. 14, Lukas Allenbaugh of Clay Animation Network (CAN) will visit the North Olympic Library System’s Port Angeles and Sequim libraries to work with participants ages 9-14 on making a stop-motion animation using Lego blocks and digital cameras.
The workshop at the
Sequim Library will start at 10:30 a.m. The workshop at the Port Angeles Library will begin at 3 p.m.
At the end of each 2-hour workshop, participants will have made their own short movie. Space is limited for this event and so pre-reregistration is required.
To pre-register for either workshop, e-mail Youth@nols.org or call 417-8500 ext. 7705 to register for the Port Angeles workshop or 683-1161 for the Sequim workshop.
The Clay Animation Network is a traveling animation school created and run by Allenbaugh.
A former elementary school teacher and artist-in-residence, Allenbaugh started CAN to create an environment where young people have fun while learning how animation directly integrates into various academic, theatrical and visual arts disciplines in a seamless manner. Animation offers infinite storyline possibilities and incorporates math, physics and language arts concepts.
These workshops are made possible through support from the Port Angeles Friends of the Library and the Friends of Sequim Library.
The Port Angeles Main Library is at 2210 S. Peabody St. and the Sequim Library is at 630 N. Sequim Ave.
