The Image Maker program is back and includes Digital Art and this year the Teen Center will be participating in the BGCA Image Makers program! This particular program has been around for 50 years. The goal is to teach the teens what photography is about and just how much goes into creating that perfect photo. It also enhances their artistic skills and goes beyond taking a simple selfie.

Village Choppers Drum Line visits Teen Center

 This week Rhonda Schock and James Isbrandt of the Village Choppers Drum Line stopped by the Teen Center. The Village Chopper's Drum Line not only teaches instruments and music, but they also do performances. Some of the things that are taught through the organization are drums, flags, rifles, and horns. During their presentation students and staff were able to get a small taste and participate in some of the drumming. "Music is a very powerful tool," says James. Both also discussed careers and great futures in music.
