Join the Oddfellows for a June ArtWalk - Art Adventure:

Shadow Puppets: Making & Movies
Saturday June 11th, 6-9pm
Ballard Oddfellows - 1706 NW Market St

We will be making shadow puppets (think of a character you'd like to create in silhouette).
Facilitator: Mylinda Sneed (West Cascade Puppet Brigade, Skid Row Puppet Show)

For inspiration we will be watching animations by Lotte Reiniger, a German film director and the foremost pioneer of silhouette animation. Reiniger made more than 40 films over her career. Her most famous film is 'Prince Achmed' (1922) the first full length animated movie.
