The ACE program is 4 weeks in July. Most classes are in the RRCA. One week for all ages is at CCC Arts & Innovation Center for ceramics. Children 7-9 and 10-12 attend Mon-Fri from 9am-noon. Teens, 13-18, attend from 9am-2pm.
The instructors are chosen from the hundreds of artists that participate in exhibitions and events in the Arts District. Curricula change each year to appeal to kids who attend for more than two years. Ceramic artists are selected by the director of the Clay College.
Teen attendees are often interested in pursuing art in college. MDC works with artists to offer mentoring for their portfolios.
This summer will be the 20th Anniversary of ACE! We will incorporate a celebration of that milestone during the 4 weeks.
