Postcard from Moncton
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.
Postcard from Charlottetown
July 14, 2017
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!
