For Immediate Release: Monday, December 11, 2017

Montgomery County Public Libraries (MCPL) will offer several Animation Workshops during the Montgomery County Public Schools’ winter break. The hands-on, one-hour programs are designed to show participants how to animate their drawings and create a flipbook. The programs are for ages 10 to 14 years old. All supplies will be provided.

“These workshops are a fun opportunity for kids to learn how animation works because they get to apply their imagination and ingenuity to their own animated creations,” said, Leila Cabib, a cartoonist, illustrator and animator who is facilitating the programs.
