We’re wrapping things up here at the Girls Club before the holidays, though we still have a lot of festive fun in store for the next couple of days! This week our older geek girls finished up with their Arduino microprocessors; we will begin our next session with plans for incorporating Arduinos into bigger projects. Our junior animation class finished up their final project with Beck: an AWESOME winter design that will adorn our yearly postcards. Those of you on our mailing list, keep an eye out! On Wednesday, the lil girls’ chorus sang Christmas songs and presented senior citizens with handmade gifts that they crafted in their art class. It was a fantastic event! We will definitely be working on developing entertainment and fun things for the seniors of our community to do here at the LESGC. We would like to thank the Grand Street Settlement , and all the seniors for attending.
On Thursday we celebrated our last Adventures in Design class with a super cool music workshop! Our girls teamed up to make some beautiful NOISE using found objects with our fabulous guest instructor Kiran. We also had a evening event in conjunction with GOLES (Good Old Lower East Side) screening films about art and activism. And Fabulous Friday became Festive Friday with our incredible holiday party and giveaway! We celebrated the season with delicious snacks and a ton of fun freebies. We even decorated some delicious holiday cookies, made in our very own bakery. Most importantly, we discussed what we are thankful for, and what goals we have for the upcoming year. It was very emotional to hear many of the girls say that they are thankful for the wonderful opportunities Girls Club has provided, and make resolutions to be more active members of their community this year. All of our members left with a very special gift- a gift card to Blick Art Materials, so they can fuel their creative side with some top of the line art supplies.
Happy holidays from the Girls Club, we will see you in 2014!
