BART Caring for our Community through Creativity
10:00am / Durango Arts Center
During this program we will be exploring our community in Durango and how we can give back as creatives. On December 16th they will be focusing on the art of cooking as we learn about food handling safety, how to cook meals and distribute them to the community as a fun creative pop up. On January 20th they will be learning a plethora of art skills from a variety of different guest instructors. In February we will take some of those skills in January to paint a Mural to help beautify our community. For our last two sessions in March and April we will focus on finding the value in another man's trash as we travel down the river trail finding materials to turn into found object sculptures. During these trips we will explore the local art and learn how it helps make a difference in our society.   During each session the students will also have the option of taking a creative break to learn circus skills so they can exercise both their body and minds.   This is a great program to help young artists find their confidence, learn valuable life skills all the while having fun and making new friends for years to come.   For questions, please email Mr. B, at ben@durangoarts.org. Scholarships are available. BART offers young people, ages 11 to 17, regardless of expression or identity, the opportunity to experience art, leadership and art-based opportunities.

Over the following three years, her own personal revolution becomes the precursor of a much bigger, societal change. 6:00PM: Mocktail Happy Hour 7:00PM: 100 Minute Screening of the film, Fashion Reimagined 8:40PM: Conversation   $5.00

BART Caring for our Community through Creativity
10:00am / Durango Arts Center
During this program we will be exploring our community in Durango and how we can give back as creatives. On December 16th they will be focusing on the art of cooking as we learn about food handling safety, how to cook meals and distribute them to the community as a fun creative pop up. On January 20th they will be learning a plethora of art skills from a variety of different guest instructors. In February we will take some of those skills in January to paint a Mural to help beautify our community. For our last two sessions in March and April we will focus on finding the value in another man's trash as we travel down the river trail finding materials to turn into found object sculptures. During these trips we will explore the local art and learn how it helps make a difference in our society.   During each session the students will also have the option of taking a creative break to learn circus skills so they can exercise both their body and minds.   This is a great program to help young artists find their confidence, learn valuable life skills all the while having fun and making new friends for years to come.   For questions, please email Mr. B, at ben@durangoarts.org. Scholarships are available. BART offers young people, ages 11 to 17, regardless of expression or identity, the opportunity to experience art, leadership and art-based opportunities.
