Animating and Acting on the Titanic

ClaudiaBitran_Titanic_03

This unique class gives students an opportunity to create a collaborative experimental art piece which will be displayed in the museum! Students will participate in contemporary action painting inspired by the Titanic disaster. We will activate a large scale seascape by making and painting our own paper puppet characters. Students who like to act will have the opportunity to wear costumes, learn some lines, and perform with their classmates. We will film the activities to make time-lapse videos and animations that show how the students interpreted “disaster.” All of our activities will be filmed and included in an experimental remake of the film Titanic by Claudia Bitran, whose exhibit will be on view at RMAC beginning February 10, 2017.

For students to participate, parents will need to sign an actor’s waiver/release form.
