This month, we had a first for Open Doors–a snow day! And in November, no less! Amidst the unpredictable Michigan weather, however, our teens have still found time for some fun, hands on learning. Check it out below:
As always, if you would like to see more, please join us at one of our open houses, held the second Monday of every month. Or contact a staff member. Or simply stop by. We would love to share what we’re doing with you and your teen!
This post is part of our “Your Life – Your Learning!” series, designed to help the Grand Rapids community rethink teen learning, and brought to you with support from the Wege Foundation.
One of our members at Open Doors makes beautiful folded paper art. It’s pretty fun to wander by her work space and see what she’s up to — if she has a moment, she may be inclined to show you several other beautiful and whimsical things on Tumblr and other sites. Here are two of her works:
See more on her blog. Open Doors is pleased to be a landing space for all kinds of teens, including those with a sensitive eye for the beauty in the world.
