We were hosted by the Galerie d’art Louise et Reuben Cohen in Moncton, NB at the Université de Moncton. Throughout our stay we facilitated papier mâché, painting and stop-motion animation workshops out of the gallery. A massive sculpture was realized and we painted a section of the interior panels for the container as well as realized more stop-motion animations. We had many dedicated and passionate young participants who created many outstanding works and gave a huge contribution!

A great big thank you to Moncton and Dieppe and all who came out and participated.

It was a fun week in Charlottetown. We were giving workshops from inside the Guild Theatre in downtown Charlottetown and the city was quite busy with the Canada Day festivities. We created a giant papier mâché PEI Fox eating a hamburger and other smaller sculptures. A great series of stop-motion animations were created and we had a stream of participants from all around. The incredible folks from the C3 crew came through and made a fantastic animation about their adventure traversing across the Canadian waterways in an icebreaker. We were creating inside the theatre on Canada Day and here is a film that reflects that.

A big thanks to the Guild Theatre and all the great participants who contributed in Charlottetown!
