ArtSmart Series

ArtSmart is a series of arts education gatherings, talk-backs, and lectures for adults moderated by nationally and locally recognized artists and thinkers.  It is an opportunity for art lovers to experience theatre behind the scenes and learn more from artists and performers. The lectures offer a depth of insight for learning and discovery by the participants as they experience the performance. 

The ArtSmart Series is funded by the Spruce Peak Arts Community & Education Fund.
