For the month of February, we will continue our most popular scheduled programs: crafts, computer lab, IMPROV, Zumba, youth council, batting cages, nutrition and science club. We are happy to announce that CrossFit will be back again on the 26th as well as indoor model plane flying on the 9th. Some new additions to the programs this month are creative creations which will be a spinoff of sewing where projects will include anything from sewing to crafting. Also, starting this Thursday 2/1 from 3:30-5 we will hold a program called PhotoVoice. This will be an 8-week class with a show (Artist’s Reception) on 3/22. PhotoVoice is a unique blend of advocacy, research, self-discovery and photojournalism. It is a grassroots method involving the use of photography for social change. Groups of people that are rarely heard from are allowed to record their lives though their own eyes and use this information to promote positive change in their lives and communities. The first hour of this class we discuss photos that have told a story or any photos taken by participants, and for the last half we eat pizza. For the Artist’s Reception, we print our best photo, large format (13″x19″), and write a narrative to explain what we are trying to say. We invite family and friends to come hear us read our narratives. This class is filling up fast!
