Timeless Triops - A Prehistoric Creature Nature- Animals,
Visual Arts- Other
Triops are small aquatic creatures that have not changed in over 220 million years. They are one of the oldest living animal species on earth. Although they are not well known, some people keep them as pets. Meet local author and photographer, Lori Adams, who will read excerpts from her book Timeless Triops A Prehistoric Creature. She will also explain how photographers and scientists study these creatures. Children will be able to view Triops under a microscope and make a Triops puppet to take home. Triops eggs and instructions will be provided to library staff 1 month prior, so the library can raise their own triops. Triops usually live 6-8 weeks. Books and triops eggs will be available for purchase.

Invisible ink photography? This playful workshop will have you dancing with light! Participants will help make images that can’t see with human eyes until they have been captured by the camera. Long before digital photography special effects, people were experimenting with multiple exposure and long exposure photography to create mysterious and surreal imagery. Now with digital, we can play the old-fashioned way, but see the results within seconds. Come be part of the impromptu team that will design, perform and create with imagination, collaboration and light toys. No photo or camera experience necessary. Terrific for teenagers, families or all ages. Sample photos at

Exploring Small – Become a Nature Detective! Media- Photography,
Nature- Environment,
Visual Arts- Other
This workshop challenges children to look at ordinary objects in different ways as an artist does. It encourages children to make their own discoveries about properties like color, light, form, texture, line and shading, and then how organizing and presenting this information can create artwork. I will use examples of my work as a fine artist using botanical specimens, examples of verse written for 'Little Flowers with Big Attitude' and my work as a scientific and documentary photographer for non-fiction children’s science books to help students compare and contrast being an artist and being a scientist and to encourage them in both directions. Magnifying glasses, natural objects, sample journals, paper and colored pencils are distributed. Observations are discussed about natural objects, and the various ways they can be interpreted via sketches, verse and/or scientifically. This workshop may also be booked as a series. If so, the participants receive handouts of how to photograph at home and bring in the objects and prints of their experiments.
$201- $350
