tSB Summer Recap

By | tSB News, Uncategorized | No Comments

Last week we showed off our summer program accomplishments with a tSB art gallery opening at the Piranha Shop. More than 50 people came through to see their photography, silk screens, drawings and blown glass. After student speeches and a graduation ceremony, we premiered their culminating project: this awesome tSB video.

With help from the rad women at Puget Sound Creative, tSB students learned to storyboard, film, interview and edit to produce the following documentary. Please enjoy, and if you’re inspired, consider making a donation to support more of this kind of programming and vote for tSB through the Chase Community Giving campaign!

The tSB Summer Program… Dang, there’s so much to say about it, yet, I could never really grasp everything in a paragraph. I’d like to first start off though, that I really am grateful to have joined the program. Much like the winter program, we alternate between service projects, and boarding; it’s just that in the summer, we skateboard, not snowboard, and yup, just as thrilling. This occurs on the Mondays that we meet, and on Wednesdays, we go to various places such as glass blowing in Tacoma, to staying at Youngstown to work on our video project component of the program. I seriously love and appreciate this program because not only do I get time to go to different places and skate, this program benefits me as a person and a student. While getting our service hours, we get to learn things such as gardening, and mentioned before, glass blowing! All while meeting new people who all have dope personalities. Not only do these things help us in the future, it leads us to finding a new way to express ourselves. All I have to end this is that this is such a sick program and I recommend it to any high schooler who not only wants to get their hours done, but to try new things. And of course, thank you to our sponsors and teachers!

Art in the Park

Sunday was a great day! tSB family, friends, peer leaders, mentors, alumni, and potential Prophets (1st year students) put their creative hands and minds to use to finish an intricate art mural at the Delridge skate park. What an awesome way to give back to the neighborhood we call home! After 5 hours of working in the last of Seattle’s summer sun, we put the finishing touches onto the tile mosaic.

 

This Saturday will be Delridge Day, and the official opening of the Delridge Skate Park. Come visit us and witness the awesome legitness of tSB art yourself. We’ll be there, so come around and get to know us!
