CSN | Resource Library

Welcome to the Resource Library!     

You'll find instructional videos, posts, and more that cover a wide range of mediums, styles, tools, and topics here. I will continue to add more links and update this page.

If you're trying something new for the first time, I encourage you to experiment with it on your own first with as little instructions as possible. Take some time to follow your curiosity and experiment before diving into tutorials! 

I hope this library helps you as you discover new ways to express your creativity!

If you have any questions, email Olivia at hello@atiliay.com.
