Date: Sunday, Oct 30 - Saturday, Nov 5, 2022
Subject: Storytelling, Music, Mixed Media, Unique Offerings
Instructor: Sue Truman
Share:

A crankie is a scroll of images on paper or fabric, cranked in a box to make a low-fi moving picture. They can illustrate anything, but work especially well to engage audiences with a simple story, old song, or ballad. Come with a song in mind and we'll discuss the meaning and how to communicate it visually. Scrolls will be created with watercolor, pen and ink, and/or paper collage on Tyvek backing, and crankie boxes will be made from wood. No artistic or musical experience required.

Tuition: $693.00
