Tween: Mini (Low-Tech) Movies with COMPAS Teaching Artist Kelly Meister

Tuesday, June 28, 2022


Registration is required for this event; please call 507-304-4002 to sign up. 

Audience:

ages 9-12

Language:

English

Summary:

Some say the earliest movies were cave paintings, such as the ones in Lascaux. These drawings of repeated animals, slightly varied, appear to move when a candle or fire flickers light across them. This trick of movement is similar to how movies were invented. And before the first films, in the mid-19th century, many parlor games utilized that same trick to see movement. 

Description:

Make zoetropes, thaumatropes, and/or phenokistoscopes with COMPAS Teaching Artist Kelly Meister in this workshop that explores the origin of movies. Take home a mini low-tech movie to share with friends and family!

Event Information:

For information and other questions, call 507-304-4020.

This program is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant provided by the Traverse des Sioux Library Cooperative, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
