The Teen Center offers a variety of arts programs year round. Here are few samples:
Music is a vehicle to attract teens to safe after school programs where they have the opportunity to experience personal, academic and social growth through the joy of music. Our Music program provides instruments and staffing for free music lessons and an opportunity for our members to learn and work in a recording studio. When you walk into our music clubhouse you will be able feel the vibe – guitars on the walls, drum sets on a small stage ready to rock, keyboards, computers, and a professional style recording studio. On any given afternoon you can see a small group in the studio laying down tracks, a group lesson – maybe guitar or keyboard, some kids practicing – LOTS of activity….learning, sharing, and most important, having fun!
This year-round program encourages artistic expression among Club members ages 13-18 through drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, mixed media and sculpture while providing opportunities for members to create artwork for display in a local exhibit.
The Club members can be creative in six areas – graphic design, photo illustration, music composition, game design, claymation & live – action and movie making . Boys & Girls Club of America (BGCA) provides Club members with recognition at the local, regional and national levels.
