Creative Toolkits are stocked with tools and supplies for teens to make music and art at the library. As part of their plan to develop an engaging and welcoming space, the Teen Advisory Group included an indie game, too. Stop by the renovated space at YDL-Whittaker and get creative with a Toolkit.
Use ArtRage software and a Wacom tablet to make digital art you can print or share online.
A laptop with FL Studio, a midi controller, drum pad controller, headphones, and recording microphone allow you to make original beats and record lyrics.
PORTABLE ART LAB
Make high quality art with Copic markers, Prismacolor pencils, Sakura koi watercolors, precision markers, shading pencils, and a variety of paper.
Create your own unique 2D design on our laptop, then let the Cricut precision cut it out of vinyl or iron-on decal material to decorate a notebook or t-shirt.
Use a variety of yarn, crochet hooks, knitting needles, instructions, and patterns to get started on a simple project while you hang out in the teen space.
Get inspired by our graphic novel collection, and use various sizes of fine point markers, Sakura koi watercolors, shading pencils, and paper to make your own manga.
Ukuleles, guitars, music stands, electric keyboard, bass, amp, and tuners are all available to practice or get together with friends to make music.
Choose from Exploding Kittens, Werewolf, or Sushi Go! to play while hanging out with friends.
Toolkits were developed by the Teen Advisory Group, with funding from the Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation Youth Council.
