Teen Think Tank (6th - 12th Grade): Blessings

Teen Think Tank

It's finally November and before we are inundated with holiday music everywhere and the urge to shop, shop, shop; let's take the time to pause and reflect on our life. It has been a crazy couple of months and lots of things have changed not just for ourselves but for so many people. Sometimes in order to put things in perspective, we must look at the world around us. This week we'll take a look at Life Lessons and Blessings. What are you thankful for?

Teen Think Tank (6th - 12th Grade): Inktober Cartooning

Teen Think Tank

It's Inktober! Illustrator Jake Parker created this event in 2009 to encourage people of all skill levels to draw something once a day for the month of October, and to share their drawings on social media (#inktober, #inktober2020, @inktober). You don't have to be a great artist to participate, this is something ANYONE can do, regardless of experience. The point is to improve your skills and to inspire/be inspired by others. Read on for more information and join our Inktober drawing classes!
