Drop-In Workshop for Teens: Animation

Drop-In Workshop for Teens: Animation

Join us for an animation workshop celebrating Black animators in the film industry. 

The Education team invites teens to join museum educators on the third Friday of every month to be inspired by the museum’s exhibitions and screenings, explore the museum, hang out, and get creative.  

For our February Drop-In Workshop, we will celebrate Black History Month by highlighting Black animators in the film industry. Learn about career paths along with the process, techniques, and tools used in animation and create your own artwork!  

Black animators have made major contributions to the film industry since the 1950s with Floyd Norman being the first recognized Black animator in history, creating opportunities for the many artists to come after him. 

Meet us on Friday, February 17 from 4:30pm to 6:30pm in the Shirley Temple Education Studio on the museum’s Lower Level. Workshops are designed for teens ages 14 and up. Snacks will be provided. 

All workshops are free with museum admission and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Museum admission is free for youth ages 17 and under with advance reservation.

 Check back soon for upcoming workshop themes.
