Each class is two hours long. We will first watch examples of films that use the techniques to be discussed in class. Then, Artist in Residence, Jude Shingle will model how that technique is accomplished. The rest of the class is open for students to explore the animation technique by completing a specific challenge. Each class is limited to 20 participants, but all materials are provided (cameras, materials, computers, etc. provided)
The GED test is brand new, effective January 2, 2014. And, we have just the thing to help people who want to take the test.
Our Learning Express Library database was recently updated to version 3.0, which features the brand new GED test preparation. The GED test now has a new format, different content, and it tests new skills. The test also is completely computerized. No pencil and paper tests will be given now.
Learning Express Library has practice tests for the new GED test in both English and Spanish. The practice tests simulate the content, timing, and format of the new 2014 GED test.
The Erie County Public Library, with generous support from the Friends of the Erie County Library, welcomes Fine Artist, Videographer and Director of Box of Light Studios, Jude Shingle as its very first Artist in Residence. Jude’s residency will begin in late February and will last through March with classes being offered at Blasco and all four Library Branches located throughout Erie County.
The focus of this first Artist Residency will be Animation. Jude Shingle will offer classes in Claymation, Found Art Animation, LEGO (Brick Film) Animation, and Cel Painting. All equipment is provided and classes are FREE, but registration is required as materials are limited.
In addition, Jude is our featured artist in our new Art Display Space at the Blasco Library. You can see his work hanging along with a display of Claymation and LEGO movies that can be checked out with your library card.
