Anacortes teens hosted a fun and festive booth at the Winter Wonderland Walk in Washington Park, Anacortes in the beginning of December. A team of teens from the Boys & Girls Club worked with staff to design and decorate a campsite to share with the community. The event is a free holiday event hosted by the Parks and Recreation Department of the City of Anacortes and is supported by local businesses, service groups and community members. Each group decorates a campsite in Washington Park to share the holiday spirit with winter enthusiast who stroll through to admire the displays with hot chocolate and flashlights in hand. The theme of the Boys & Girls Club display with The Grinch and was enjoyed by members young and old!
The Anacortes Boys & Girls Club has their creative juices flowing in the art arena! The Art Center has been beautifying their space and creating an array of work in a variety of medias. Members have been enjoying some out of the box thinking and new ideas during their time in the Art Center.
The Teen Center recently partnered with Kate Clark from the Anacortes Museum to create collages using vintage letters, postcards and publications. Then they’re framing their art using vintage frames. The next project they look forward to tackling with Kate is revamping a wall mural in the Teen Center.
