Artist Workshop

Artist Workshop is a program unique to CRS where parents bring the world of art to the classroom. Students enjoy a brief (pre-written) art appreciation lesson with a fun, hands-on project. Each workshop ties directly to their curriculum. It's is a great way for parents to connect with students, while exposing them to a whole new facet of history, science, and math. Is it easy? Yes! Do you need to be an artist? Nope! Is it fun and memorable? Absolutely! Learn more and sign up onlineOrientation is 9/12 at 7 p.m.
