PPLD's makerspaces are great places for generating creativity, innovation, and learning. To foster such endeavors, PPLD has a Maker in Residence program.
Makers have an 8-week contract. During that time, they work on a studio/lab project, and teach classes at Library 21c, East Library, Sand Creek Library, two other PPLD locations, and the Manitou Art Center.
If you are interested in dropping by and talking with our resident maker, you can check our calendar for when he/she will be in Make for studio time. You can also sign up for one of the classes being offered.
Interested in becoming a maker for PPLD in the future? Keep your eyes peeled for our next Call for Makers!

Maker Qualities:

  • Creativity
  • Skills to teach and share
  • Ability to introduce others to what being a maker is in the vast expanse of making
  • Techy people
  • Artsy people
  • Well-developed ideas for their studio project and classes that are detailed in their proposals and can be accommodated at multiple PPLD locations
  • A wide variety of different activities and skills from across the making spectrum

Thank you for your interest in the Maker in Residence program! We get all of our makers and artists through a Call that we hold usually 2-3 times a year. We currently don't have a Call for Makers open. We hope to have one in October, 2016. The process for applying, the application, and proposal requirements will all be posted on the website during the Call.

I have been painting using oil, acrylic, watercolor, colored pencils all my life. I would like to teach a class on using Art as therapy with a method given through inspiration that is a form of creativity that professional Art Therapists use. It is very effective in diffusing distressing memories.

The experience as an Artist in Residence was phenomenal! I appreciated the opportunity to work with the library staff and patrons in the community! Dr. Wanda
