StART It Up with Art in the Park event
Project ARTstART, a Claremont Museum of Art education program, trains high school students, working with college mentors, to provide exhibit-based art lessons for elementary school students.
The program brings high-quality art appreciation classes and activities to the Claremont school system to inspire, promote understanding of art and highlight Claremont’s rich artistic history.
For the fourth consecutive year, the high school students of Project ARTstART will curate ARTstART: StART It Up, an overview exhibition that includes highlights of each of the exhibition-based art units ARTstARTers presented to fourth through sixth grade classes at Mountain View, Oakmont, Sycamore and Vista del Valle elementary schools.
As part of this year’s exhibition, ARTstARTers will host art-making activities for visitors of all ages at Art in the Park on Friday, May 29 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. in Memorial Park at 840 N. Indian Hill Blvd., Claremont.
The StART It Up exhibition, presented by the Claremont Museum of Art, will be on view in the nearby Claremont Heritage Ginger Elliott Exhibition Center. The exhibition will also be open on Saturday, May 30 and Sunday, May 31 from noon to 5 p.m.
