Join us for a special concert by an award-winning children's musician and artist. Gustafer Yellowgold is the brainchild of singer and illustrator Morgan Taylor, who accompanies Gustafer on various adventures that appeal to both kids and grownups. The New York Times described Taylor, who as an adult rocker has shared bills with the Smithereens and Bob Dylan, as "a cross between Yellow Submarine and Dr. Seuss." This event will be held in the Rosa Auditorium, adjacent to Anythink York Street. Appropriate for all ages. No registration required.
Explore the world of animation using tools in The Studio. Experience storytelling, movement and how real animation artists put it all together. All ages welcome. No registration required.
Use The Studio to create your own project. This week, explore comics, animation and other ways of telling your story through art. All ages welcome.
As some of my previous blog posts have mentioned, I love animated movies. My favorite animated filmmaker is Hayao Miyazaki. His movies cover many topics, but focus on coming-of-age stories and interactions with nature. These deep and visually impressive films pull at the heart-strings while impressing the eye. Any of his movies are worth watching, but these four movies will pull you into a new magical world.
As I look back at 2012, there are many films that were enjoyable, but only a few stood above the rest. Interesting performances and genre-bending styles made these movies capture my attention. While you gear up for new releases in 2013, consider checking out one of the following films, even if it may not be in one of your favorite genres.

As an animation enthusiast, there are many different types of animation I consume, running the gamut from children’s materials to intensely emotional films. I'm going to focus on some of the more emotionally intense animations that I have seen recently.
