Why fourth graders?
Recognizing a strong tie between the Colorado History focus of fourth grade curriculum and the Fine Arts Center’s incredible collection of Native American and Hispanic art and artifacts, the Fourth Grade Passport to the Arts program was born!

Your membership will be extended an additional year at the Family level. Contact our membership department at firstname.lastname@example.org or (719) 477-4390 with any questions.
What if I miss one of the shows?
