Creative Fun Days
School’s out – art’s in! Fun-filled, full day art programs at a great value on CPS scheduled days off.
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. Students also gain exposure to enduring ideas that have shaped art of the past and present, here and through other nearby cultural resources. Kids take art breaks throughout the day with children’s books, games and puzzles.

Designed to help homeschooling families nurture their child's creativity, this 15 week program builds artistic skills and knowledge through enriching hands-on activities, group discussion, and creative collaboration with classmates. Every semester is completely unique, so young artists can enroll year after year!
Wednesdays, 3:00 - 4:30 PM
August 29 - December 12
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.
Saturdays, 1-3 PM
September 8th - October 27th
This class is designed for artists who are interested in telling stories through their work. Artists will learn about style, mood, character design, action, lettering, and more!
