Each Thursday for 1 hour after each Teen program, members of TAB have decided to hold an open game time for any teens in grades 6-12 who are interested in improving their game, sharing winning strategies or simply want to play games in a relaxed environment with their peers. We will have checkers, chess and backgammon boards available (or you're welcome to bring your own). All levels of players are welcome! Feel free to bring a snack to share with the group! No registration is necessary. (Group will not meet on Thursday, July 14th).
SRP - Thursday, June 23 @ 1 pm - Introduction to Drawing w/ Megan Lloyd - This program is for teens who enjoy drawing and focuses on building fundamental skills. Students will learn basic techniques of drawing from Megan Lloyd, who has illustrated over forty children's books.

There will also be a Q&A session for teens interested in asking Ms. Lloyd any questions. In order to ensure individualized attention and instruction, there are a limited number of slots available for this program and registration is required. Snacks and all supplies will be provided. One lucky teen will win a door prize just for attending the program!
