The Image Maker program is back!

This year the Teen Center will be participating in the Image Makers program! This particular program has been around for 50 years. The goal is to teach the teens what photography is about and just how much goes into creating that perfect photo. It also enhances their artistic skills and goes beyond taking a simple selfie. It will focus on portraits, nature, and environmental photography. We look forward to showing you future photos that are created by our teens.

Crochet Program with Debbe

Meadowdale and Parkview club members have had the opportunity to be involved in the Crochet Program run by Debbe Lowe. Club members that participated learned new creative skills to show off their talents and create amazing things with Crocheting. Members created beanie hats, headbands as well as wash cloths. Some of the items created were donated to the newborns at Sherman Hospital. Great job to all who participated in the Crochet program!

 

Village Choppers Drum Line visits Teen Center

 This week Rhonda Schock and James Isbrandt of the Village Choppers Drum Line stopped by the Teen Center. The Village Chopper's Drum Line not only teaches instruments and music, but they also do performances. Some of the things that are taught through the organization are drums, flags, rifles, and horns. During their presentation students and staff were able to get a small taste and participate in some of the drumming. "Music is a very powerful tool," says James. Both also discussed careers and great futures in music.

Teens create playable video game!

      Hey there all you techies! The teens finished their first Game Design program this week!!! They learned the different segments of what is included in creating a game as well as creating their own! The program consisted of a 14-lesson program and worked with the popular game engine known as Unity. The Teens made and followed a tutorial series that ultimately created a wave base survival game. Members learned the basics of C#, an object-oriented language, and modifying scripts. They also worked with Mono Develop software which is a programming compiler.
