Ready for some hands-on media making?! In May, our guest makers are DS Kinsel and Julie Mallis of BOOM Concepts and Magic Organs! This dynamic duo will work with kids on a variety of fun projects involving print and digital media. We’ll make zines, prints, and animated video projects, and we’ll learn about how these things can all be connected.
This week, D.S. Kinsel will be working with kids on screenprinting posters and images for their zines. Kids will draw images and write words on foam sheets, which will then be used to create original prints. Students will number and sign the prints for eventual inclusion in their zines.
Saturday Crafternoons promote hands-on learning and community engagement through free, drop-in workshops with local makers and community partners. Each month, we’ll host a series of fun, educational workshops that involve collaboration, skill-building, and neighborhood connections. Weekly attendance isn’t required, but it’s encouraged!
