Young people's school day performances
Each year the Quick Center hosts a series of daytime performances for young audiences.
Some feature performances by the same accomplished musicians visiting campus as part of the Friends of Good Music's Performing Art Series. Others are productions by professional theater companies catering to young and family audiences.
Performances include a Theaterworks USA presentation of "The Magic School Bus: Lost in the Solar System," a Kit's Interactive Theatre presentation of "Pioneer Travel on the Oregon Trail" and more.
Learn about the entire lineup at Young People's Performances.
Each year, the QCA conducts art exhibitions for young artists from across the region.
There are separate juried exhibitions for elementary, middle and high school students. For dates of upcoming exhibitions, submission deadlines and guidelines, opening reception information and more, visit our Juried Exhibitions for Young Artists
