The Power in Your Pencil, Nov. 18, 2017

The pencil you use every day for school holds a wonderful secret: it’s a powerful tool! Pencils allow us to explore the world in many ways, including drawing – one of the best ways to get in touch with your creativity and imagination. Drawing allows you to explore your environment, create an imaginary world of your own, and create something that gives you a sense of pride. Click here to register. Badge: Drawing (Juniors).

Give a Girl a Brush! Nov. 18, 2017

Discover the artist within you and practice your painting skills with a group of friends who have share your goals! Click here to register. Badge: Painting (Brownies).
