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 of Palm Beach County 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 are a free, intergenerational program presented by various arts and cultural organizations in Palm Beach County. Each event takes place at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County in downtown Lake Worth and run from 10 to 11:30 a.m.

For more information, please contact our Education Department: education@palmbeachculture.com | (561) 472-3347.
