The Cedar Key Arts Center sponsors a two week summer art program for elementary students and teens annually. Each year the elementary program, which is taught by a professional, certified art teacher, has a theme and students are given many choices of art mediums with which they can create art. For the past few years the students have been guided by teacher, Jessie Rothbard’s instructions and gentle leadership and have been assisted in creating their art work by art community volunteers. The program generally accommodates 20-25 students.

The Teen Art Summer Program also explores different art mediums which have included pottery, mosaic, silk painting, fabric art, drawing, painting, printing and more. These classes are taught by individual artists with assistance from volunteers. There are usually 10-15 teens attending each class.

The program charges a modest $20 fee for the two weeks for elementary students and $10 per class for the teens. There are scholarships available for anyone who needs it.

Thank you to everyone who has supported this program through the years by volunteering, attending the exhibit, donating money for scholarships, buying tickets for the Children's Art Benefit Dinner and/or donating items for the Silent Auction and Raffle at the Children's Art Benefit Dinner. We could not do it without your generosity.
