Tween Mini (Low-Tech) Movies

June 28 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Blue Earth County Library

Some say the earliest movies were cave paintings, such as the ones in Lascaux. These drawings of repeated animals, slightly varied, appear to move when a candle or fire flickers light across them. This trick of movement is similar to how movies were invented. And before the first films, in the mid-19th century, many parlor games utilized that same trick to see movement.

Make zoetropes, thaumatropes, and/or phenakistoscope with COMPAS Teaching Artist Kelly Meister in this workshop that explores the origin of movies. Take home a mini low-tech movie to share with friends and family!
