On Saturday, September 13, MAKESHOP will be participating in an awesome event at Pittsburgh Glass Center called Play by the Fire from 6:00-9:00pm. Teens are invited to work with local arts organizations to try something new and connect with other young creative people and artists. There will be music to dance to provided by Kelly Strayhorn Theater, Swag Monkeys and Tracksploitation. We’re excited to try pizza being made in the furnaces, along with s’mores — and much more!
MAKESHOP will be working with large-scale stop-motion animation. You can move objects (and yourself!) to create a short stop-motion animation by creating and using handmade props to build a simple set. Work with an overhead camera to tell a story frame-by-frame.
Tickets are free! Please register ahead of time at Pittsburgh Glass Center’s website. We hope to see you there!
