WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Nearly 30 parents and students attended the first of two open houses for the newly announced ‘Discover Series’ said Robert Hamon, Center for Creative Education (CCE) CEO. The children explored a variety of art stations including music, creative dance and media.
Interested parents were able to fill out applications, and apply for needs-based assistance, as the program is being supported by a $250,000 anonymous donation. The next open house is Saturday, May 24 from 10 – 11:30 a.m. Arts faculty will be on-site to conduct brief demonstrations and give parents and students hands-on examples in each art.
Class sizes are limited and openings are available on a first-come, first-served, application basis. Classes will take place at 425 24th St., CCE’s namesake facility in the heart of West Palm Beach’s Northwood Village.
Starting on June 17th, CCE will offer 60 rising third-grade students an opportunity to discover their passion for the arts. The “Discover Series” will allow young children to explore music, dance, theater, visual arts and media. The students do not have to have a specific talent or art experience. CCE is looking for kids with curiosity, a strong commitment to study the arts and the discipline to attend the weekly classes on a regular basis. Students wishing to apply to the Discover Series must be Palm Beach County third-graders willing to commit to the program for the full three years.
