The Palm Beach Post presents Family Saturdays

Did you know that students who participate in the arts have higher test scores and lower drop-out rates? And that family traditions provide a source of identity, strengthen family bonds and offer a sense of security?

The Cultural Council invites families to discover the arts together as they connect and create memories while acquiring new skills through visual art, dance and theater. Family Saturdays is a free program presented by various arts and cultural organizations in Palm Beach County. Each monthly event is hosted at the Council’s headquarters in downtown Lake Worth Beach and runs from 10 to 11:30 a.m.

The 2021 season of Family Saturdays is presented by The Palm Beach Post. For more information, please contact our Education Department: education@palmbeachculture.com | (561) 472-3347.

Generously underwritten by: Celia Lipton Farris and Victor W. Farris Foundation, The Batchelor Foundation, and Jim and Irene Karp
