The computer lab at the Birmingham Public Library will be the vortex of creative energy this July. Local teens are attending free classes at the Library to learn to create computer art for submission to a contest sponsored by the city of Hitachi, Japan and the Hitachi Corporation. Hitachi is Birmingham’s sister city in Japan. The classes will be taught by an art student from UAB over the course of four Saturdays in July. We look forward to seeing what these teens will create.
