Welcome to the Dollhouse (R)

This relatively low budget, independent film was a surprise success starring Heather Matarazzo as the preteen outcast Dawn Weiner "Wiener Dog" who is desperately trying to survive the 7th grade in suburban NJ with un-attentive parents, mean classmates, a smart older brother, an attractive younger sister, and her own insecurities. This film won the Grand Jury Prize for best dramatic feature at the 1996 Sundance Film Festival.

Liquidscapes: Colorful Creations (All skill levels)


Get ready to capture some unique effects as you squeeze drops of food coloring into water to create artistic liquid landscapes. The food coloring will appear to float, then slowly disperse into abstract lines and shapes. As the colors continue to sink and shift, you can photograph the interesting ways they form and intersect to create rainbow effects. Experiment with a variety of containers, colors and props!


*All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian, and due to limited space, pre-registration is required.
