Teen artists take note!

One of the summer activities of this year's Teen Summer Reading Program is to create a self portrait, a contest tied in with the TSRP theme, "Beneath the Surface."

Teens are asked to create an expressive self portrait that shows who they are or how they see themselves, in one of four media: Photography, Drawing, Painting, or Collage.

Do you have a teen who is considering creating a SELF PORTRAIT? Is he or she wondering what kind to do or how to begin? Well, first of all, read all about it on our Self Portrait Page. Still not sure? Is your teen one of those people who says "I can't draw!" and that's the end of it?

Don't worry--teens can come to our WORKSHOP! We will look at self portraits from all angles, and demonstrate some drawing techniques and collage tips to help them. Thursday, June 13, from 3:30-5:30 at the Central Library. This workshop is for teens at any level--no special art abilities are required to create a self portrait, just enough curiosity to give it a try.

Teens should bring (if they can) a freestanding or handheld mirror, and some photos to use as references. We will provide the art supplies. This program is for teens in 6th through 12th grades ONLY. Call 818 238-5589 or email to sign up!
