Friday Arts Academy

Friday Arts Academy | September 6 - December 13

Celebrate the arts at the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center and give your student up to a full day of visual art, music, theater and dance in a safe, beautiful arts environment! Averaging $6 per class per week, the Friday Arts Academy offers an unparalleled experience in the arts for children in grades 1-12.

Designed especially for District 70 and Pueblo City schools, as well as private and homeschooled students, children have a chance to explore many arts not offered in school. Classes are held in art studios, on the main theater stage, Buell Children’s Museum, and in dance facilities. Hour-long classes begin at 9:00 a.m. (with student drop-off available starting at 8am) and conclude at 5 p.m. A supervised lunch period is available (must bring own lunch). Classes are subject to enrollment numbers (minimum and maximum varies by class type).

Arts Center members receive a 10% discount!
