You are more creative than what you think!

Who has time to create something every day? You do, absolutely.

Join the Create Everyday Challenge in 2021. Your creative acts could be in cooking, sewing, knitting, doodling , jewelry making, journaling, decorating, using your Cricut, STEM projects with your kids, or making art in the form of collage, paint, or clay…or whatever! You are limited only by your creativity and Creativebug is here to help. With Creativebug you can experience the joy of creating with thousands of award-winning video classes taught by top designers and artists. The best part is the library offers Creativebug for free! All you need to do is visit our website and click the Creativebug widget. You then just login in with your library card and password.

Your challenge starts now.

Level Up Your Photos with Adobe Creative Cloud

In the Creative Space, our iMac is set up with a subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud, which includes Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, Lightroom, Premiere Pro, and InDesign. Let your imagination run wild with these creative tools! You can edit photos and videos, create vector designs, and develop publishable brochures, newsletters, or posters for print or digital distribution. Plus, you can check out our Wacom Intuos Pro drawing tablet to capture an image with the comfort and convenience of holding a pen.  

Never used Adobe Creative Cloud or a Wacom drawing tablet? Sign in to Beanstack to watch tutorial videos and learn the basics.

 

Oh, the Things You Can Do… With the Cricut Maker

With the Cricut Maker in the Creative Space, you can make unique homemade creations with hundreds of materials, including wood, leather, metal, glass, fabric, vinyl, iron-on, and of course, paper. As shown in the video, you can draw, perforate, cut wavy edges, engrave, deboss, and cut fabric by simply changing the tool in the machine’s tool housing. You can also score and cut with remarkable precision.

Sign in to Beanstack to earn the Cricut Maker badge and start making! You will need to provide your own materials, but the equipment is free to use in the Creative Space.

Programs to Go

In September, we are going to start several Programs to Go.  Program to Go means basically this:  we select a project and place all the items you will need to do that project in a bag.  Bags will be available for pick-up on the dates noted in the description and will be available while supplies last.  You can pick them up by coming into the library or by using curbside pickup.  Program to Go will be for a variety of ages including children, teens, and adults.  Some of the programs will also use online resources we have like Creativebug and Beanstack.  We are SO EXCITED that we can be offering some kind of programming even though we cannot get groups together in-person. To see what we are offering or for more information visit our website and click on the Event Calendar.
