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.

We're starting weekly sessions of Magic: The Gathering in the TECH Lab! Come down and learn how to play this exciting card game, hone your skills, or just hang out with some fun and like-minded teens. Feel free to bring your own decks or cards, but we'll have plenty here to use and learn with. These weekly sessions will be pretty informal and fun, but we'll also have tournaments and other activities from time to time (we'll announce it well beforehand). Until then, see you on Friday!
We’re ending the school year by holding one last draft tournament, and everyone who participates will get to keep the decks that they draft. The winner will get all the left over cards from the booster box too! We’re limiting sign-ups to 10 teens, so be sure to sign up ASAP.
