The Teen Center offers a variety of arts programs year round. Descriptions of programs are listed below.
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. BGCK music programs provide instruments and staffing for lessons and an opportunity for members to learn and work in a recording studio. The Teen Center’s Music Studio is complete with guitars on the walls, drum sets on a small stage, keyboards, computers, microphones and digital mixing consoles. On any given afternoon you can find a small group in the studio laying down tracks, participating in a group lesson, learning, sharing, and most importantly, 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.
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.
