Make Something of Your Summer!
There’s no reason for the words “I’m bored” this summer as the Kent Memorial Library has plenty of things to do. Between the Teen Summer Reading Activities and the Teen Outreach programs, we’ve got it covered! For FREE! Just make sure to check the library website, our instagram page @suffieldlibraryteens and register. Grades entering 6-12. All programs at the library. Thanks to the Friends of Kent Memorial Library for their generosity and support of teen programming!
Make a Movie
Stop action animation/ live movie making with Mason Beiter is scheduled for July 17-19 from 2 to 4 p.m. Learn how to create a short film under the guidance of an award-winning Suffield grad and now Eastern Connecticut State University student. Mason will show you the tricks of the trade, from software programs to filming techniques. Bring your own camera, iPad or iPhone if you can.
Make a Code
Cybersecurity with Holyoke Codes is ready for hacking July 31 from 1 to 3 p.m.: Learn about cybersecurity and digital forensics! As more and more of our information moves into the digital world, it’s increasingly important to be able to protect our important data. At this workshop, we’ll learn how investigators collect evidence, crack password security, break encryption, decipher cryptography, find hidden information in images with steganography, and recover information in deleted files. You’ll use your new skills to help solve a mysterious, unsolved case!
Make a Zine
Artists and writers – join us as we design and publish a black and white Zine, August 14, 15 and 16 from 2 to 4 p.m. A Zine is a self-published booklet crafted by cutting and gluing poetry, inspiration, short stories and other text and images onto sheets for photocopying and stapling. We’ll be sharing our Zine with the folks at the Jacksonville Public Library in Florida and, if we’re lucky, Skyping with the creators of NickName Zine.
Make a Pet Painting
A bit like the trendy paint night parties, local artist and instructor Christine MacClintic will help you take a photo of your pet and turn it into a fabulous water-color painting. You provide the photo ahead of time and Ms. MacClintic will have it ready to paint for the session. The date for this afternoon class is Monday, July 30, 10 a.m. to noon. Please check the website for details.
