Celebrate the holidays at the Crocker’s first ever Sketch-a-Movie featuring The Nightmare Before Christmas! The creativity and artistry of director Tim Burton are on full display in this critically acclaimed audience favorite, which first hit screens 25 years ago. Before the screening, enjoy a fun sketching lesson where you’ll learn how to draw Jack Skellington, Sally, Oogie Boogie, and other characters from the movie. Then, sketch along as you experience the movie with new appreciation, or just sit back and enjoy the show! Limited sketching supplies will be provided, or bring your own (no pens or markers please).
