Christine Fellows, staff from The WRENCH, and the students and staff of Room 12 at Marymound School in Winnipeg spent four days together, creating collages in celebration of bicycles for this stop-motion animation.

Presented in partnership with the W.R.E.N.C.H. (Winnipeg Repair, Education and Cycling Hub).


GIF and Short Animation Workshops with Art City!

Using a few different online apps, you will be creating GIFs and short animations with the help of an artist from Art City. Recreate your fave GIF! Make a GIF or animation with your own face! Make an animation that rotates 360 degrees! We will start with the easier things and then get more complex over the course of the eight weeks of workshops each Sunday afternoon. You don’t have to participate in all eight weeks to learn though! We will have options for people who want to drop any week and for people who come each week to build more and more basic animation skills.

WHAT YOU NEED:

Internet access and preferably a computer or laptop, but an iPad, iPhone, or Android also work well (some apps have worked less well on androids but not usually).

ABOUT ART CITY:

Art City is a not-for-profit community art studio dedicated to providing people of all ages with innovative and professional art programming, free of charge.


This free program is presented with the support of the Province of Manitoba’s Safe at Home program. Visit safeathomemb.ca for a list of other programs available for free.
