Get Creative at the Library

Join me at the Central Library for some creative discovery. We’ll be drawing with Augmented Reality, and editing photos and videos with mobile apps to harness the creative power of that smartphone in your pocket.

Thursday, Sept 19, 4:30 to 6:30 Central Branch

Creating with technology calls for a poke and play mindset. 

There are no wrong answers.

Let your curiosity, your courage and creativity awaken your sense of play.

We will be using apps that are listed on the Community Resources page. Bring your curiosity! This is “discovery learning” — when you jump into mobile photo and video editing and drawing in AR. Technology, apps, are all changing so quickly nowadays that it isn’t really possible to learn “how to do” — now you need to learn “how to learn” through what I like to call, the poke and play method.

It’s creative thinking that is good for you and your brain. What happens when I do this…? and this? And what happens when I combine these two actions together? Ask questions, be curious, test and find out. A perfect mindset for science literacy week!

Drawing in Augmented Reality is a full-body, 3D experience. Come out and try it out! Let’s get creative together!

This program is offered in partnership with the London Public Library

There are many programs being offered at the London Public library branches for Science Literacy Week. Check them out here. We are so fortunate to have such rich programming and amazing facilities here in London through our library system. Visit your neighbourhood branch and join in!

If you are on the West coast, join poet Natasha Boskic and me for some creative play with Words and Media for Culture Days Vancouver!
