Youth Services Staff are invited to explore the concept of "Re-thinking" your surroundings to create engaging opportunities for joy and self-expression! The Creativity Workshop will give attendees an introduction to building art projects and STEAM challenges with recycled materials. Delve into character creation, designing thinking, problem solving, and storytelling.
Creative Workshop is a four-hour hands-on training. The workshop will be held twice: at PLSHQ on Tuesday, December 7 and at Livionia Pubic Library on Monday, December 13. Please only register for one session.
A materials list will be provided to registrants in advance. Each attendee will receive a copy of Brian's book, ScrapKins: Junk Re-Thunk.

His other books include Shark and Bot, Pirate Chicken: All Hens on Deck, The Build-It Book, and Shark and Bot: Sleepaway Champs. He has worked for Jim Henson Productions, trained as a special effects mold maker, written and performed comedy, and designed software, toys, and apparel for the children's market.
