Skillshare: The School of MakeOurMark

Skillshare: The School of MarkOurMark

Skillshare and Levi’s have teamed up to offer six classes taught by talented creatives, with 100% of the proceeds going towards arts and music education for kids. This is part of Skillshare’s “Give Back to School” initiative.

I asked if I could try out a class in order to write about it, and I chose the mobile phone stop-motion animation class taught by Brock Davis. It was full of great little tips like using Vine to record stop-motion videos even if you want to eventually upload them to Instagram (because of Vine’s ghost effect). Davis shows, step by step, how he created this animation and right now he’s giving feedback to anyone who submits their finished projects to the class.

If you use the promo code ‘OURMARK’ you can enroll in the classes for free! You can read about all six classes here.

Watch the intro video for Brock Davis’ class below!

Artist Spotlight: Carson Davis Brown

“Mass” is a project by artist Carson Davis Brown in which he creates sculptures inside of big-box stores and other places of mass. He constructs the unauthorized installations, photographs them, and then leaves them to be discovered by shoppers and staff. Images of the installations are printed, framed (using un-sold frames), and exhibited inside the stores without permission. See more images from the series below as well as video clips documenting the building of installations using cameras tethered to in-store camera displays!
