Programs

 Ticket Town is a program that connects children and youth with local performing art experiences. Since October 2017, hundreds of students have attended dozens of performances by groups like WV Symphony Orchestra, the Charleston Ballet, Charleston Light Opera Guild, and more.

The Children’s Art Fair is the perfect two days of family fun, and is adjacent to the Capitol Street Art Fair where dozens of professional artists sell their works. The Children’s Art Fair & Sale offers young artists the chance to interact with each other and the public. 

Art-for-ALL is a kid’s juried art exhibition that is open to ALL children in grades pre-K through 6th grade. The exhibition provides a forum for student artists to display their work and to recognize young artists who may otherwise not get to show their work publicly.
