    The Teen Education and Creation Hub (TECH Lab) at Billings Public Library is starting its own teen art club! The club will be led by Damin, a TECH Lab mentor and life-long, self taught artist. Members of this fall's art group will learn essential drawing fundamentals such as the human figure, perspective, and composition. These methods will allow teens to more easily draw what they see or bring to life the places and characters of their imagination. This program will be very adaptive to participants' interests. Among the areas we might explore are: character, creature, and vehicle design; portraits; and/or symbolism and visual communication. No previous training or education is required, just a desire to be creative and improve your skills. The library will provide basic supplies, although teens can feel free to bring their own items. The art club will meet every Wednesday at 5 pm in the TECH Lab. 20th. Sign-up is required, to call 657-8290 to join the group today!
