Friday Arts Academy

Celebrate the arts at the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center and give your student up to a full day of visual art, music, theater and dance in a safe, beautiful arts environment! The Friday Arts Academy offers an unparalleled experience in the arts for children in grades 1-12 while maintaining strict covid-19 safety standards for instructors and students.

Designed especially for District 70 and Pueblo City schools, as well as private and homeschooled students, children have a chance to explore many arts not offered in school. Classes are held in art studios, on the main theater stage, Buell Children’s Museum, and in dance facilities. Hour-long classes begin at 9:00 a.m. (with student drop-off available starting at 8:45 am) and conclude at 5 p.m. A supervised lunch period is available (must bring your own, nonperishable lunch). Classes are subject to enrollment numbers (minimum and maximum varies by class type).

Arts Center members receive a 10% discount!

Great classes may include:  Clay Handbuilding, Computer Animation,

Acting, Fiber Arts and Mural Painting, Intro to Cartooning,

Photography, Rhythm & Percussion, and more!

General Policies:

  • No refunds will be given for students who miss class (sick, quarantined, vacation, or otherwise).  However each class will offer at least 2 online (Google Classroom) lessons for anyone to access at any time, to help families maintain connection to the learning if a child has to miss a class.  Note:  These classes require a google account to access.
  • Refunds will only be given if the Arts Center cancels class.  However, refunds will not be given if class is cancelled due to a COVID/pandemic related closure.  Classes have been created to account for this possibility and will immediately move to Zoom/Google Classroom options should this type of closure occur.
  • If a family has been exposed to COVID 19, we ask that you stay home and quarantine for the suggested 14 days.
