  1. Creative Relationships 101

    March 5, 2018, 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM @ DeKalb Public Library, Teen Study Rooms

    Relationships, like art, are creative! No two relationships are the same, but by practicing good communication, boundaries, and consent we can bring more health and happiness to every unique relationship. Creative Relationships 101 is a series of 4 workshops that will use conversation, games, and art-making to help us explore, understand, and improve connections with friends, family, crushes, classmates, and boos. Workshops are Healthy Relationships, Boundaries and Communication, Consent, and Creative Relationships Wrap Up. This week we will be discussing Healthy Relationships. Explore the different types of relationships in our lives, understand how they impact our health and happiness, and define healthy and unhealthy relationship dynamics. This FREE program is intended for tweens in grades 6-8. Registration is not required. Folks will not be admitted into workshops more than 10 minutes after the start time.
