Ani-Makers – for Middle and High School students
Calling all anime fans, creative types, makers and friends! We want to start a group just for you 🙂 Each month, we’ll get together to watch a fun animated thing and create a fun thing, too. Our first meeting is Saturday, October 27 at 1:30 PM.
Since this is a brand new group, you’ll get to help shape our activities to reflect your own interests. Have a great craft idea? Share it! Have a new favorite show? Share that too! Bring your friends and make some new friends.
