The Art Center plans to host its second Takeover: Teen Creativity Party, a night for students interested in art and looking for creative outlets. This event is made by and for local teenagers. Students may provide their thoughts, gain leadership skills and earn community service hours when they join the advising board. The work involves creating programming that links teenagers to art and artists. The event will also feature food, music and other activities. The upcoming event will be on Feb. 10 at the Art Center from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. The first volunteer meeting to help organize the event will be on Dec. 8, followed by two more meetings before the actual date. More information can be found on the Art Center website, Facebook or through contacting the Palo Alto Art Center’s Director of Volunteer Engagement Grace Abusharkh at grace.abusharkh@ cityofpaloalto.org.
