Teen Scene:

We had a very exciting week last week between the challenges set forth for our participants and learning to paint using palette knives at Paint Night! TSRC participants were challenged to read a book which was turned into a movie and then watch a movie produced before they were born. Paint Night saw participants learn about perspective, colour, and painting techniques, allowing 10 similar but distinct painted creations! This week participants can challenge themselves to read a book set in their favourite season and to take a picture of themselves reading outside. Completing each of these challenges earns a star toward the grand prize gift certificates.
