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:

The youths came up with these ideas, wrote scripts, drew storyboards, selected props and sets, videotaped themselves, and the edited the final projects — including making posters. Enjoy!
On Saturday, March 11, Fountaindale hosted our first Maker Faire. The event had huge support from our community and featured a bevy of activities including Spaghetti Bridge Building. Check out the highlight video below. And head to our Flickr page for even more pictures.

There was only one problem: the cart was too plain.
Using Studio 300 technology we gave the cart a much-needed makeover. After designing the graphics using Adobe Illustrator, we sent the files to our vinyl cutter, and then installed the finished pieces on the cart. The pictures tell the story.
Visit Studio 300 and learn about how to use the vinyl cutter for your next project.

July 11th dawned bright and sunny, so the tweens set out on their photo adventure! During this Photo Bootcamp our young patrons learned about photo composition and using the rule of thirds to take better pictures. Their objective was to complete a photo scavenger hunt. Laughing and jumping, dancing and making silly faces, they spent the morning having fun while learning to be better photographers.
The afternoon was sweltering so as the heat index rose, the teens explored the library with its comfortable A/C. The teens learned how to compose pictures and to apply the rule of thirds. With their scavenger hunt they explored the four floors of Fountaindale Public Library.
Both groups did a phenomenal job and had fun while learning photography techniques. Take a look at some of the great photographs they took that day by visiting our Flickr site.
