NEWS: Cultural Center Releases ARTrageous Tuesdays Educational Programs

Cultural Center Releases ARTrageous Tuesdays Educational Programs

West Valley City – The Utah Cultural Celebration Center is pleased to announce our educational program schedule for the 2011-12 school year.  Make reservations for your students to join us for ARTrageous Tuesdays! We offer diverse arts and cultural activities for student groups of all ages throughout the year. 

Typically, ARTrageous Tuesdays! programs are about 90 min to 2 hours long, and include a guided exhibit tour or live performance followed by a hands on, participatory, arts making or cultural experience. The program changes each month to take advantage of the diversity of events going on at the center throughout the year. Programs are offered FREE of charge to all public and private school groups and after school groups throughout the valley. Groups of about 30 students at a time are preferred. Splitting into smaller groups and alternating between the exhibit tour and hands-on activity will allow us to accommodate larger groups of 60 or more. School groups are expected to bring a number of teachers or other adults to chaperone students appropriately. ARTrageous Tuesday programs are offered from 9am through 5pm. Reservations are required, and will be accepted on a first come first served basis.
