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, kids will work with Julie to learn different DIY book-making techniques, ultimately creating physical and animated digital copies of their booklets. They will create a series of mini booklets, use watercolors to apply colorful washes on their books, add words and images to their booklets, and finally digitize their booklet contents to create an animated flipbook.
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!
