Last Tuesday night was the first of a monthly series of awesome craft nights for teens that focus on using recycled materials. Our first project was making reusable tote bags out of old plastic shopping bags, which we did by fusing together layers of plastic bags with an iron and then sewing them together.
Naruto, Ichigo, Rurouni Kenshin, OH MY! Be sure to stop by the Blue Springs North Branch for our Bi-Annual Cosplay Competition on Monday February 7, 2011 at 6:30 PM. It was so successful last year that we have decided to do it again. Dress like your favorite Anime character, or just come and watch. We want to make sure everyone is fully prepared for Naka Con this year. Snacks will be provided. Stick around after the competition for some Full Metal Alchemist.
Can’t wait to see you or whoever you come dressed as there!
How Surreal! Using an Air Canvas & Light Paint Brush
One of the activities during Teen Photography Club at the Oak Grove Branch is drawing with light using glow sticks. You can create any design that pops into your head. This is an easy activity you can do at home! Find a dark or dimmly lit area, some glow sticks and your camera, then unleash your creative juices. Remember, just have fun with it! You'll surprise yourself at how easy it is to create an uber cool work of art.
"Konnichiwa" and "Kite kurete arigato" were the words of the day last Monday when 17 tweens arrived at the Grandview Branch. In their program Journey to Japan, they perfected their origami folding, practiced with chopsticks, and made (and ate) candy sushi.
On February 7th, the Anime Club of Blue Springs North held our Bi-Annual Cosplay Competition. Wanting to get some time in as their characters before Kansas City’s Naka Kon Anime Convention (February 18th-20th), club members came dressed as characters from Axis Powers Hetalia. The winning title, however, belongs to Libby Johnson who dressed as Byakuya Kuchiki from Bleach. Prizes included books, posters, and Mangas, and everyone enjoyed celebratory cupcakes.
