SNAPSHOT DIGITAL STORYTELLING WORKSHOP

We all have at least one or two—those old photos that capture a moment in time with piercing accuracy. Now is your chance to take that photo and turn it into a powerful digital story. Digital storytelling is the process by which people share personal tales and creative thoughts with others using a combination of digitized images, narration and music.

Explore digital storytelling through a workshop at the Library. Our Snapshot Workshop is a one day workshop in which you will create a three-to-five-minute story based on the photo of your choice.

Check out our Digital Stories page to see examples of stories created in previous sessions.

Session 2: Sunday, February 23rd, 9 AM to 5 PM COMPLETE

Session 3: Sunday, April 27th, 9 AM to 5 PM COMPLETE

Session 4: Sunday, August 24th, 9 AM to 5 PM COMPLETE
