April 2023 South Side Animation Club

Happy Monday!

This is a friendly reminder that our next South Side Animation Club meeting is happening this Saturday, April 22, from 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at the Tacoma Public Library Moore Branch (215 S 56th St). The club is free and all ages! Please note the shift in time by half an hour; if you try to get into the room before 10:30, you will be put to work. 🙂 (Thank you to everyone who helped with setup and tear down last month! You are all awesome!)

Saturday is also Earth Day, so this is a good time to remind everyone that the Moore Branch is accessible by multiple bus routes.

We do have a few free animation kits left, and they are available on a first come, first serve basis. If you need one and did not get one yet, they will be available at the front of the meeting room as you walk in. We also have newsprint, pencils, loose flipbook paper, and other supplies/ equipment which we will go over at the start of the club. As usual, we will start with a mini-lesson that is not dependent on whether you showed up to the previous lesson. This week, we’ll talk about the 12 Principles of Animation.

If you have work you’d like to share, please bring it! If you’d like to have your work projected, please email a link to nominestudios@gmail.com ahead of time, or bring a USB drive. (This is an all-ages event, so please share work that is PG/ General Audiences friendly.) The showcase will start at around 12 p.m. (or sooner) depending on how many participants we have. We will also plan a longer Showcase later in the year. More details to come!

Local game devs, you are welcome to share your work here as well! Message me ahead of time so we can make sure we have the necessary equipment/ cables.

Share with Friends! Please help us get the word out to as many interested community members as possible!


The South Side Animation Club wouldn’t be possible without the Tacoma Public Library Moore Branch, the City of Tacoma Arts Commission, the City of Tacoma Office of Arts and Cultural Vitality, and the support of the greater Tacoma community.

Thank you very much! We can’t wait to see you Saturday!
