Animation Workshop at Family Day

Artists Lilli Carré and Alexander Stewart led a wildly successful animation workshop in the summer of 2013, and we invited them to offer another iteration at our Family Day on April 12, 2014. Kids and adults alike drew series of charming, eclectic characters—mermaids, exploding robots, scribble monsters, and gentlemen donning hats, suits, bathing suits, or nothing at all—which Lilli and Alexander then brought to life using a squash and stretch animation technique.

Carré and Stewart’s short film above captures the sense of play and diversity of ideas that enliven these monthly events.

Although Family Days return in the fall, there's a special MCA Studio this weekend. Join us to see what artists and families can create together.
