We had so much fun "painting" with light! The room was buzzing with creativity.  If you want to light paint at home, find a dark room, put a digital camera into manual mode, change the shutter speed to 15 seconds or long exposure setting, and use bright flashlights with focused light to "paint" in the air. It's that easy! Try out light painting at home and make sure to share your photos with the librarians!

Take a look at the amazing results below!



We had an awesome time making artbots - robots that move and create their own art. We used pool noodles for the body and put a motor from an electric toothbrush into the pool noodle. Next, we attached markers for feet, and decorated our artbots!

Check out the video below to see the artbots in action!

We had so much fun in our Post-It Project program on Tuesday night! Check out these stop-motion animation projects kids created with just post-it notes (and plenty of imagination, of course).


Lights, camera, action! During our video editing workshop, we learned about the video making process. Barrington kids storyboarded their films, filmed their scenes, and then edited their video content with the app, Videoshop. Check out the amazing films that were created.
