Summer with Rand offered through BCRAC

The Bradford County Regional Arts Council is excited to announce their collaboration with Rand Whipple’s Box of Light Studio to offer two socially distanced, multi-day workshops for your children entitled Summer with Rand!  

Calling all K thru 2nd grade authors, artists, and Lego maniacs! Children and parents that sign up to participate in this three-day in-person parent and child workshop, Creating a Digital Storybook, will have the opportunity to work together to create their very own digital storybook filled with animation, illustrations, and video.  

This workshop will take place under the pavilion at the Memorial Park in Towanda from 10 to 11 a.m. daily, beginning on Wednesday, July 29, and ending on Friday, July 31. Parent and child teams will be spread out to comply with social distancing guidelines, and masks will be required to be worn by all participants. The cost to register for this workshop is $15.  

Their second workshop will offer children with a unique opportunity to collaborate with other young filmmakers from a variety of locations if they sign up for our second workshop entitled, Green Screen Film.  This workshop is a 5-Day Virtual Workshop for children ages nine and Up.  

Using Zoom, an online video conferencing platform, students will come together virtually to learn filmmaking, green screen, and how to storyboard and script their own film. By the end of the five-day session, students will celebrate their hard work upon the completion of one collaborative film. 

Participants will be provided with access to the Zoom workshop after they have signed up.  Participants will also need a device to set up and access a free Zoom account and a video recording device such as a computer, Smartphone or tablet, as well as four to six pieces of bright green pasteboard to fully participate in this workshop. 

Workshop participants will meet virtually from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. each day beginning Tuesday, July 28, and ending on Saturday, Aug. 1. The cost to register for this workshop is $20.
