Adventures in Digital Arts for Youth

Adventures in Digital Arts for Youth

Posted by Emma on August 13, 2021

Art isn’t just about paint, crayons, and markers anymore. Digital Art is an innovative new form that uses technology as part of the process. Encouraging youth to learn and explore the various kinds of digital arts broadens their creative horizons and introduces new tech skills.  

The Creator Space Mobile Digital Arts Lab, in partnership with The Blue Mountains Public Library, is bringing innovative, digital art programming for youth to the L.E. Shore Library. These free sessions, for ages 8-13 years, will kick off by introducing video and animation while giving young participants the chance to try out the latest and coolest technology.

Saturday, September 11 - ADVENTURES IN DIGITAL ARTS: Part 1

This session will explore cartooning and making a film using the latest and coolest in tech such as Apple Pencils, and Digital Cinema Cameras. A fun-filled session featuring local award-winning cartoonist Jeff Wilson and local filmmaker Tom Strnad.
