Tiverton Library Services in partnership with the RI Museum of Science and Art presents five workshops this summer at the Tiverton High School Library. These workshops are designed especially for teens, ages 11-18, and participation in the summer reading program is required to attend the workshops.

RI Museum of Science and Art (RIMOSA) a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, is a group of imaginative people committed to a single goal: using Rhode Islands’ rich resources in the arts and sciences to create a distinctive, highly interactive, informal learning center.

RIMOSA’s mission is to awaken curiosity and increase independent thinking, creativity, and innovation in kids 8 and up – and adults, too!  This mission is accomplished by encouraging the exploration of science through art, and art through science, with interactive exhibits, educational programming, performances and participation in music, dance and theatre, informal discussions, and other museum events.

RIMOSA's staff will lead five workshops on animation and film. These workshops are perfect for the curious at heart, for teens who are interested in learning more about animation, and for teens who already have some experience with illustration and/or animation.

Tuesday, July 3: Animation and Objects

Tuesday, July 10: Animation and Cut-Out Objects

Tuesday, July 17: Animation and Pixilation

Tuesday, July 24: Color, Emotion, and Illusion

Tuesday, July 31: Sound Effects & the Art and Science of Auditory Perception

All RIMOSA workshops will be held from 10:30-11:30am at the Tiverton High School Library. The Teen Librarian will supervise the program.

Teens can register for the summer reading program and for any of these programs by calling the library at (401) 625-6796 x14 or emailing kpiasecka@tivertonlibrary.org.
