Teen Tech Week begins March 10 with ArTech Fun

Every year, the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) encourages libraries across the country to celebrate Teen Tech Week. Its purpose is to connect teens with technology through the library. YALSA teams up with Verizon to offer small cash grants to assist libraries with their celebrations. This year, we applied and won one of those mini grants! Encourage teens to participate in a fun and interactive program.

ArTech Fun combines art and technology through the use of Wacom’s Bamboo Fun Tablet. Two digital drawing tablets and a small collection of digital art books have been purchased to help teens take their art to the next level. Guest speakers will be invited to show teens how to use a digital drawing tablet and talk about their careers. Teens will then be able to reserve time slots to work on two projects. The first project is to create promotional art for the summer reading club and perhaps create an animated short. The second project is to create their own artwork to be showcased in an art show that they plan. Reserve your spot! For more info contact Lisa @ 875-0700 ext. 8518 or visit myspace.com/dvdteens

Tuesday, March 10 @ 4 p.m.
Saturday, March 14 @ 4 p.m.

Projects continue throughout March and April
