Art and Crafts

The Teen Open Lab has many opportunities to explore new ways to make cool stuff. We have graphics tablets that allow you to draw directly into a program (such as PaintTool SAI), vinyl cutters (to make stencils, labels, stickers, and pop-ups), sewing machines, and much more. You can combine these techniques to create your own unique pieces!
