“You’re the Star” Flipbook Event at PSA

Peninsula School of Art (PSA) invites the public to participate in “You’re the Star,” a free flipbook celebration, on July 6 from 3 – 5 pm.

Short videos will be made by the school staff – with attendees as the “stars” – and then printed onto paper as still images. The end result will be a 60-page flipbook to take home. Props will be on hand to inspire participants for their videos. Treats will also be served.

According to Kay McKinley Arneson, director of Marketing & Exhibitions, the flipbook event blends art education with the making of a lighthearted keepsake.

“You’re the Star” introduces family members of all ages to the basic concept of animation while providing them with a fun activity they can do together,” she says.

“You’re the Star” coincides with PSA’s The Art of Animation exhibition, on display until July 14. The exhibit features award-winning animated short films by National Film Board of Canada artists. Participating artists Cordell Barker, Amanda Forbis and Wendy Tilby are multiple Oscar® nominees. The exhibition is also free and open to the public during school hours.

Peninsula School of Art is located at 3900 County Hwy F, in Fish Creek. Hours are Monday through Saturday, 8 am – 5 pm. For more information call 920.868.3455 or email [email protected].
