We're thrilled to offer our first Afterschool Art Elective of the 2023-2024 school year. Through a partnership with STAY aweSTEM and the Onion Foundation, we are able to provide the 6-week course: 

Principles of Filmmaking and Animation:
Intro to Storyboarding

Oct 10 through Nov 15
Tuesday  and Wednesday 3pm to 5pm



This class will meet in-person at the Center Theatre for the Performing Arts and via Google Meet and is limited to 20 participants.

This class is offered on a 'pay-what-you-can' basis. You pay whatever you are able, including $0.
You can also make a separate donation if you would prefer.


Since the start of 'flicker pictures' in the early 1900s, storyboarding is a time honored tradition in filmmaking and animation. In this course, students will learn the fundamentals of storycraft through the usage of storyboards. This is a 90 minute, 2X a week, 6 week course in the fundamentals of storyboarding. This course will be offered virtually via Google Meet with several in-person sessions with the CEO and Chief of Education of Stay aweStem Robin "Professor Robin" Kirk. Robin is a native of Abbott, Maine and is passionate about sharing her skills and experience with kids in our communities. In this after-school course, students (7th-12th Grade) will learn how to tell fiction and/or nonfiction narratives via storyboards including, but not limited to, the main storyboarding images, written narrative captions, and FX usages. 


There are NO PREREQUISITES to this course, and students DO NOT need to know how to draw to take this course. The only requirement is a deep desire to tell a story and a willingness to learn how to make a film and/or a cartoon.
