Just a quick update.

I hope everyone is enjoying their holidays! I found this video on youtube that shows the type of art journaling we will be doing in the creativity studio. This is just one person's take on the art journaling process and everyone will have their own personal style by the end of the program. The basic book construction is what we will be working on during the first session. We will also start some backgrounds. Please check out this video and come to the workshops! I will update with dates as soon as I get them.

Looking Forward

December and the Holidays are wrapping up. I hope everyone has been having a happy end of 2009. January is the start of a new year and the start of some awesome programs in the creativity studio. I will update with a complete calendar soon but let me give you a few sneak peek links.

Art Journaling: This is a fun way of recording emotions and thoughts onto paper without having to write. Its a no rules method of self expression. You can find some cool examples at the following places
I will add more examples as we get them in the creativity studio.

Artist Trading Cards: A quick way to make art on a small scale. These cards are as fun to create as they are to collect. You can find information about them at the following places
Those are just two of the awesome activities that we will be doing frequently in the creativity studio. Be sure to stop by and check out all the fun creative projects.

Some of you may have noticed that the creativity studio was buzzing with activity today! Some of us in the creativity studio have decided that the studio just didn't feel very creative. So we pulled everything out of the closets and cabinets and began organizing. I look forward to the finished product and will update with photos once we get everything together. 2010 has many things in store for this teen center and a whole lot is planned for the creativity studio. I hope you are ready to have some fun, because I am!

Cactus Planting

While you were waiting to get your picture taking there was plenty of other things happening in the teen center.
Grace was potting cacti that will bloom with beautiful flowers. Because they are cacti they need very little water. It was a little messy, but hey we can always clean up later ;)

Jenni also did a very relaxing yoga workshop that I was unable to attend, hopefully she will continue to offer these stress relieving classes so we can all benefit.

First Post!

This is so exciting! In this digital age our teen center needs to keep up. So I am creating a blog for the creativity studio and will welcome contributors as well as other bloggers! So who has a blog they want to share? I will keep the comments open as long as they stay appropriate. So leave a comment telling me what you want to see on this blog. As the teen center is your place, so is this blog.

Tonight I will be doing a fashion photo shoot at 5pm. Expect some of those photos to be posted soon.

On Friday November 20, 2009 I will be hosting a quick and easy photo editing class in the creativity studio. So be sure to have some of your digital photos ready to edit at 5pm. :)

I will be inviting the other members of the creativity studio to become authors so expect to hear more from them soon.

On Saturday there is going to be a huge dance party at the Teen Center. I will be there photographing so be sure to stop by and have some fun!

Just wanted to update with some photos from the shoot ;)

THANK YOU to everyone who came and helped out and just enjoyed the fun atmosphere. Its because of the positive responses we will be able to do these things more often in the future!
