Maker Mirror Magic

IMG_20180709_131027It’s the season for BBQs, fireworks and garage sales–especially items from the free pile. Case in point: this cracked mirror with a lot of potential.

Using Adobe software to create a design and then cutting adhesive vinyl using the Studio 300 Maker Lab Zing vinyl cutter, this garage sale find became a unique object for the home.

Studio 300 & The Bookmobile

Recently, Studio 300 left the lower level and ended up outside in Winston Woods Park in Bolingbrook. Here we teamed up with our Outreach department and together we led a fun photo scavenger hunt for families. The clues stumped a few of our participants but in the end everyone completed the hunt and earned themselves a prize.

Catch us again alongside the bookmobile at Winston Woods Park in July.

Beat Making Workshops

Our Summer Camps continue and once again our young patrons gathered in Studio 300. This time they experimented with basic beat making in a half-day bootcamp. Listen to their fine work.

Tweens

The Tweens collaborated on this project using GarageBand software.

 

Teens

Our teen patrons worked together using the Native Instruments Maschine hardware/software instrument.

 

Songwriting Workshop

Studio 300 kicked off this year’s Summer Camps for our Tween and Teen patrons with a Songwriting Workshop. The young patrons gathered for a creative collaboration in Studio 300. Together they selected a background music track, composed their melody, wrote their own lyrics, rehearsed the song, and then performed the track in one of our soundproof audio booths. Enjoy the results of their hard work:
