Saturday Crafternoons

May 16, 2015 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Ready for some hands-on media making?! In May, our guest makers are DS Kinsel and Julie Mallis of BOOM Concepts and Magic Organs! This dynamic duo will work with kids on a variety of fun projects involving print and digital media. We’ll make zines, prints, and animated video projects, and we’ll learn about how these things can all be connected.

This week, we’ll be working with Julie to craft poems and stories for inclusion in our zines. Kids will bring and collect objects inspired by their neighborhood and then “draw” their words using imagery, typography, colors and symbols. The final poetry will be included in kids’ zines.

Saturday Crafternoons promote hands-on learning and community engagement through free, drop-in workshops with local makers and community partners. Each month, we’ll host a series of fun, educational workshops that involve collaboration, skill-building, and neighborhood connections. Weekly attendance isn’t required, but it’s encouraged!
