Laredo Center for the Arts Laredo
Where are we going today?
It's so fun to express yourself in a creative way, and art is amazing for that - you can create whatever you are feeling!
Laredo Center for the Arts KNOWS how important art and expressionism is for development, and in life, so they have a FREE art experience for the whole family!
Located in downtown Laredo, the center encourages self-expression through not only visual art, but through music, literacy, theatre, and dance. They believe that art is essential for every community, and very person (it IS!) and so they collaborate with artists to give these opportunities.
The Laredo Center for the Arts also hold classes, exhibits and performances so they can enrich the lives of families just like you!
The exhibits are both permanent and changing, so there should always be something new for you to experience on your future trips to the center. From paintings using all sorts of colors and textures, so sculptures and even student work (great to inspire the kids!) - there is always something amazing lining the gallery walls.
And it doesn't stop there! The Laredo Center for the Arts also hold a number of events across the year, from fundraisers to artists having a chance to showcase their cultures through song and dance.
An artistic (and did we mention free) way for the family to spend the day in Laredo - creativity is so important and a place like this lets kids express themselves however they want!
So get down to this creative hub in Laredo and have an art attack!
