The Teen Brooks program comes to an end this week. Below is a recap from two-year Teen Brooks alum Ashton Arroyo.
I have been involved in Teen Brooks for two years now, since the program started. The meetings have always been fun for me. Mostly due to the new people I meet, I happily anticipate each upcoming meeting. All of us who participate have an interest in art, and many of us find that we have other similar interests as well. Interacting with the other members is very refreshing for me because I feel comfortable and act as my casual self (rather than acting shy, which may come as a shock to some members, who may say that I remain shy!). My favorite activity in Teen Brooks was when the whole group worked on creating an exhibition. We unanimously decided to have an ‘Artpop’ theme. I enjoyed every process in creating the exhibition, right up to the opening day.
