In Your Classroom Workshops

Our FREE classroom workshops offer an opportunity to have a professional in the filmmaking industry teach students about what goes on behind the scenes in their profession, helping students become informed viewers and critical thinkers. 

Currently, we are offering our Behind the Animation Workshop. Behind the Animation is an interactive presentation for 3rd to 8th-grade students that takes them Behind the Scenes to learn the secrets of animated films and the animation industry. An artist working in the animation industry will teach students the elements involved in visual storytelling such as color, shapes, facial expression, and body language. 

All Behind the Animation sessions are booked for spring 2021. Please check back in late summer for fall dates.
