Wat je gaat doen

We'll visit ROM exhibits to capture images of things we'd like to animate/make move. Then we'll travel to a local digital hub where we can work on computers to make a gif using simple frame-animation techniques. No previous experience is required! You'll create a gif you can share through messaging and social media, you can even use your work as a screensaver on your home computer!

We'll meet at a museum, talk about gifs and simple 2-5 image animation techniques. We'll brainstorm ideas and share tips that will help you take the best pictures possible for your gif. We'll explore exhibits together, talking about the things we see along in the way, discussing all the exciting (and realistic) things we can create with the time we'll have. After we've all captured the still images we need to get animating, we'll head to the library to manipulate our pics into gifs using free online apps/platforms or photoshop.

You'll learn how to save and share your moving picture in gif and mp4 and leave with skills to create more "motion photographs" of your own, for Instagram, promotional materials or fun!

I am an artist and animator with 13 years experience facilitating arts workshops through art galleries, schools, and community spaces. You can see what I do on Instagram @NeverGalReady or either of my websites: karendarricades.com and nevergalleryready.com. This is just another place to do what I do: collaborate, have fun and offer tips for creating and sharing GIFs, motion photographs and video-loops

Waar je naartoe gaat

We will spend 1.5-2 hours at the Royal Ontario Museum. Then we will go to the Toronto Reference Library at Yonge and Bloor. Alternatively, we might go to a local artist's studio or artist-run-centre/gallery where we would have access to computers with Photoshop, in the Bloor street west area of Toronto (Bloor and Ossington, Dupont and Dovercourt). Digital hub access at any of these venues requires advance notice in order to book.

Karen is clearly gifted at what she does. Her vast knowledge base and highly personal demeanor made for a deeply rewarding and unique experience. I saw Toronto through new eyes and took away permanent digital skills in terms of photography, gif making, and more. I also love the gif I made. I now have an original souvenir that I can share easily with others. Lots of laughs and great conversation as well. I give this experience my highest recommendation. Thanks for a great day!

I loved this experience. Had great time exploring the ROM and also my own creativity. I would describe this experience as the entrance door for animation video. She does also helps you to polish the ideas you could have and different ways you could develop and grown your ideas in the workshop. Last but not least, the product of the workshop is shareable and works as a nice gift.

This was a really fun experience! I found out about it, kind of by accident. I had signed up for another tour of hers (which was awesome, too!) and I found out about this one. I thought it would be fun to learn something new, and it was! I really enjoyed myself. It was a fun, quirky way of seeing the museum, but also learning how to make gifs. No, I didn't come out an expert, but you learn the basic techniques well enough to let you develop from there. I would highly recommend this to anyone who likes to learn new things.

This was a really amazing workshop! First we went to the ROM and it was cool to walk around with the lens of trying to capture an image to make it into a GIF. Next we learnt how to take our images and make them into GIFs. Karen was super helpful, patient, knowledgeable and also a great storyteller. She shared some great insights and by the end of the session I had made my own two GIFs. Also it was amazing to see the GIFs that everyone else had made. I would definitely recommend this workshop.

I participated in this 'airbnb experience' with Karen recently, and loved it! We learned all about GIF-making (and the history behind it), got to interact with the royal ontario museum in a really novel way, and ended the day by learning how to personalize and activate our gifs. We each left with a gif we could re-use, but more importantly, Karen was really open to building our skills so we could also apply this knowledge in the future. This workshop would be great for artists, educators, or people who want a different approach to checking out, and interacting with artifacts in a museum. Karen was also very personable - it was a fun afternoon out! The check in process at the museum was also particularly seamless.

Karen provided both a fun and creative experience for me to push my photography in a direction I never knew was possible. I look forward to incorporating the stereoscopic style .gifs she taught into my art practice. Karen was incredibly knowledgeable and easy to get along with. I would recommend this experience to all creatives. Bonus that the Rom admission is included in the price :)
