Haunted Wagon Stop Motion Animation Class at Mini Time Machine Museum

October 21, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Bring your ghostly creations to life using Stop Motion Animation! In this class, participants will build a miniature western wagon, create “haunted” accessories, and assemble a cast of ghostly characters. Participants will bring movement to their miniatures using “frame by frame” stop motion animation techniques. For some extra spooky fun, participants will tour the museum’s temporary exhibit, Jean Leroy’s Buzzard Creek Ghost Town and enjoy the HalloWEEn decorations!
