New art explorations and activities in a range of media are introduced at each Creative Fun Day, making each program a unique experience for participating students. Children participate in gallery activities that encourage active looking and engagement with original works of art in the CAL gallery.

This program is designed for artists grades 6-9, who are ready to take their art to the next level. This class will focus on drawing, painting, and sculpture skills, as well as self expression and meaning making through visual art.
Many middle school students have to sacrifice visual art because they simply don’t have space in their schedules. At such a crucial time in a child’s artistic development, this class provides the opportunity for creative middle schoolers to maintain a well-rounded connection to all forms of art and expression.
