The Library may still be closed, but did you know that you can access almost all the software that we use in the Creative Lab from your home computer? From Lego simulators to music production software, this list has all the free software you need to take your artistic endeavors to the next level: Opensource/Free Software.
Learn basic 3D Modeling with TinkerCad:
Then see your project come to life when your design is printed on our 3D printers! Click here to submit your design file for printing.
Learn Digital Art with Krita:
Or explore the cosmos with Space Engine – the universe simulator:
The City Library makes it easy to learn all of these programs by providing everyone with a library card free access to Lynda.com. A site where you can go step by step through each program and download practice files.
We can’t wait to see what you all have made when the library reopens!
Can't wait? Share photographs or your creations or digital art with the whole community by submitting to our Teen Creations portal. Your work might even end up here on the blog!
