A Towson University stop motion animation class that has met weekly in a downtown Towson storefront will screen its work in a public open house on Thursday, May 24.

Beginning at 6:30 p.m. in a previously vacant Towson Commons storefront, students will screen their work for class mates, faculty, and the public.

The event is free and open to all, and refreshments will be provided by Towson's Kathmandu Kitchen.

The class is located on the street level at Towson Commons, West Pennsylvania Avenue at York Road.

The class has utilized the space in the mostly vacant building because it allowed students to leave their sets and work spaces undisturbed — a situation that would be difficult in a classroom setting.

Students have produced stop motion animation videos from scratch — outfitting the space, building miniature sets and incrementally moving pieces of clay to simulate motion on camera.
