Pop Up Art School: Shadowbox Theater

Pop Up Art School: Shadowbox Theater

Learn about the animator Lottie Reiniger, a pioneer of silhouette animation, and create your own shadow box theater! Using a story you already know, or one from your imagination, you'll make silhouettes of characters and props. The theater will be lit from behind by the light on a smartphone or flashlight.

This hands-on art class is for kids entering grades 2-5 in the fall.
