RE-ART is an art program for children ages
5 to 12 years that encourages exploration of art in new contexts,
inspires creative minds, and fosters critical thinking to help our
children connect with the world and with each other. The sessions
will emphasize cross-pollination of arts and culture
disciplines while encouraging children to find art in
unexpected places as well as in everyday experiences. The program
goal is to help Boise's children live richer, fuller lives through
their participation in the arts.
RE-ART classes will be offered
September 2013 - May 2014, every second weekend of the month. These
classes are first-come, first-served (no pre-registration) so
arrive a few minutes early to get a spot!
