Crane River Theater, in partnership with the Kearney Cultural Partners, will host Family Arts Festival in 2022. This free series of entertaining workshops will include hands-on activities taught by professional arts educators that will expose kids of all ages to a variety of visual arts, music, theater, and dance. By pooling the talent and resources of the Kearney Cultural Partners, it increases the opportunities for everyone and ensures that kids will walk away with a wide array of artistic experiences. It is a perfect opportunity to explore, create and have fun.
