The Seymour High School Y-Teens had a great time while helping out the community as they volunteered at the Knoxville Museum of Art from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sat., Dec. 13, for the KMA Family Day.
The day was filled with activities, including artist demonstrations, continuous entertainment on stage, face-painting, balloon-twisting, docent tours and fantastic art-making activities inspired by the museum’s current exhibitions and the holiday season.
Entertainment was provided by the music duo of Jeff Barbra & Sarah Pirkle. Einstein, the 19-year old Congo African parrot from the Knoxville Zoo, was a huge hit with the kids.
Artist Harriet Schneider, Roane State Community College instructor Bryan Wilkerson and others were on hand for demonstrations, and a Gilliland Farm draft horse was outside, turning the antique ice cream churns.
The YWCA Y-Teens are middle- and high-school community service-based clubs. Y-Teens clubs are structured to teach leadership through empowerment and ownership.
Y-Teens participate in volunteer projects within their schools and community-wide.
