Come support children’s art at the Cultural Activities Center with the largest non-competitive children’s art exhibit. The public is invited to attend the 19th Annual Student Art Exhibit at the Azalee Marshall Cultural Activities Center. During this exhibit the CAC celebrates teachers and student art from around Central Texas in all four public galleries.

ArtWorks, a celebration of children’s art and creativity, will be on display at the CAC from April 15-May 22. ArtWorks is an opportunity for local students, pre-K thru high school, to exhibit their artistic creations in a professional gallery setting complete with an opening reception event and gallery tours. ArtWorks is a wonderful celebration with over 4,000 works of student art, and the galleries are covered from wall to wall. Children from many area school districts have been invited to participate in this wonderful celebration. If you would like to participate please contact the CAC prior to April 1.

At the gallery opening, there will be a ribbon cutting which begins immediately at 5:30pm and the reception last until 7 p.m. Some Academie Musique string students under the direction of Marie Smith will provide music for the evening. The public is invited and there is no cost to the reception or the exhibit.

A special thanks to Temple High School’s CATE (Career and Technical Education) Hospitality Class for providing refreshment for the evening. Students are preparing the food under the direction their teacher Susan Crossno who has been featured on Food Network. Special treats in store are hand-made chocolate treats and French cream puff pastries.

Funding for ArtWorks is generously provided by Temple ISD and Dick Blick Art Supplies. Core Support for programs and operations at the Cultural Activities Center is provided by an annual grant by the Texas Commission on the Arts.
