Our art workshops provide teens with a creative outlet and the opportunity to try different art mediums to express themselves – and to learn from others’ creative expressions. Sessions are led by local volunteer artists with a wide range of backgrounds and expertise, and include:
Skateboard Deck Artistry
Ceiling Tile Artistry
Our baking and cooking workshops are both popular and inspiring, encouraging teens to create their own meals and treats, and join in creative cooking contests that help them build valuable life skills.
These workshops currently include:
Making Ice Cream
Creating Custom Pizza
Mystery Box Challenges – where teams of teens receive the same ingredients and have to work together to create a winning dish
Cooking an Entire Meal (e.g., for Thanksgiving, an Italian feast and other ethnic-themed dishes)
Cooking with Burners and Microwaves
What To Do with Leftovers
Museum Field Trips
These special outings both educate teens and expand their horizons as they learn about San Diego’s vibrant cultural landscape by touring local museums. Trips are usually followed by picnics in the park.
Science is a big hit with the teens. Our workshops include results-oriented projects, where they learn to analyze scientific data in an engaging environment.
Annual Halloween Horror Movie Experience
We put on quite a production at Halloween, and teach teens how to create a horror movie from start to finish. This fun-filled workshop gets teens involved in the script, make-up costumes and filming. Check out our most recent productions. (insert link)
