Express yourself in Studio i and the Messy Makerspace at ImaginOn through animated and live action videos, music or other tools including graphic design with Adobe Creative Cloud, drawing, and even robotics. These spaces have the tools needed to create content whether it’s for a school project or an engaging hobby. This space is located on the second floor in the Loft at ImaginOn and is for ages 10-18 and parents/guardians with children in this age range working on a project together to bring stories to life! Anyone outside of this age range is invited to use Satellite Studios equipment at other branches throughout the system. This summer, Sugar Creek, Beatties Ford Road and Matthews will have them available.
Teens and families will gain visual literacy and storytelling skills through working with such software as GarageBand, iMovie, ICanAnimate, and apps from the library’s digital devices.
