Art Club for Teens with Hope Hilton (for ages 13-18)
Fridays, from 6-8 pm.
For ages 13-18.
This is a creativity class for teenagers, meeting every Friday evening. Drop in as you like, or come to them all!
How do you document your life? In this workshop we will learn creative approaches to journaling, including storyboarding and using non-typical materials. Using writing and drawing prompts, we will begin our creative journal adventure with pencil, pen, and watercolor, among others, and along the way learn more about ourselves and one another.
Sign-up online or when you get to class. This class is limited to 12 students.

WHAT TO BRING:
- You'll need some basic drawing tools for this class: a couple pencils (2H and 4B preferred), a thin black pen (we love the .005 Micron), some watercolors, a watercolor brush, and a multi-media sketchbook. You can bring these supplies from home or purchase our discounted set HERE.
- Bring some snacks for yourself or to share if you'd like to eat while you're here.
(If you purchase Hope's discounted Supply Kit, it will be ready for you when you come to class.)
