The Opposite of Summer School

What’s more fun? Doing all sorts of creative arts and writing stuff or making your own cool movie? Don’t worry, you don’t have to choose. Write@253 can help you do both this summer!

Every Tuesday and Thursday, write@253 team members are out at Salishan in east Tacoma, leading fun art and writing activities during the free summer lunch program at the Family Investment Center. Students can grab a sandwich and some chocolate milk, tie dye a T-shirt, mess around with poetry, learn origami or do whatever else our creative volunteers come up with! We’re at the Family Investment Center, 1724 E. 44th St., off Portland Avenue. Drop by. We’d love to have you join us!

Are you a middle school or high school student? Do you like movies? Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a movie director and boss a whole bunch of people around while you get to create your own masterpiece? Join us for the free (yep, free) Young  Filmmakers Workshop on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 2 and 3, from noon to 5 pm at our Hilltop  writing center, 1310 Martin Luther King, Jr. Way.

We are so excited that Tacoma Community College film  gurus Chris Betz and David Endicott will lead students through the movie-making process, and we understand the workshop will end with a celebration and viewing of the student movies. We can’t wait to see what they create, and families and friends will be welcome, of course! 

There is limited space, so register soon by e-mailing Mary Fox at mfox@tacomacc.edu or give her a call at (253) 460-4474.
