From Art Throwdown: The Art Throwdown is modeled after popular cooking shows with an artistic twist! During this fun afternoon, guests will cheer on creative teams of The Center’s art teachers and students as they work together to create a piece of art on the spot in a fast-paced relay format. The catch is that each team must incorporate three surprise items from a mystery box into the finished artwork. Guests will have the opportunity to bid on the art produced and vote for their favorite team with prizes awarded in several categories. Snacks and light refreshments will be served. More information
