(age 12-19) The Internet Archive’s 35mm Stock Footage Collection is full of cool old clips that we are going to remix into a short movie. Craft a mockumentary. Green screen yourself into a 1940s hot rod car chase. Movies should be 2 minutes or less and we’ll screen them at the end. The best picture will win the not-so-prestigious (but 3D printed!) Not-scar award.
(age 12-19) Let's take some famous presidential speeches and ruin them in the best way. Rearrange, remix, change. We're going to be using public domain speeches and Audacity to make U.S. Presidents say what we want them to.
(age 12-19) Forget Instagram filters to make your pictures look all ol' timey and hip; make awesome art from ol' timey pictures instead! We'll learn some sweet Photoshop skills, mess around with a little Illustrator, even lay out a hilarious ol' timey comic strip with Comic Life.
Promoting the preservation and art of quilting. We teach, we create, we giveaway and we collect.
The quilts made are presented annually through an award ceremony to outstanding community members in recognition of their service of those in need, or to individuals in crisis, as well as to agencies that help the needy and the homeless.
