PETOSKEY: On Saturday, November 14, students, grades K-8, can spend the day experiencing the arts at Crooked Tree Arts Center in Petoskey. Kids will rotate through workshops in the visual and performing arts, enjoy a pizza lunch and have tons of fun in the process.

“So many kids have busy fall schedules and can’t get to CTAC for our after-school programming,” says Megan DeWindt, CTAC Program Director. “We’re hoping that Super Saturday will give area kids, who can’t regularly attend week-day classes, a chance to get their hands dirty creating art.”

With the guidance of local artists and teachers, Karen Mazzoline, Jennifer Nowak, Emily Stuchell, Stephen Stuchell, and Maggie VanWagoner, students will rotate through the following workshops:

  • Step-by Step Painting: Create a mini-masterpiece!

  • Pottery Project: Design the perfect cookie platter just in time for the holidays!

  • A Day at the Improv:  Learn the basic rules of improvisation and play activities to put the rules into practice.

  • Magnificent Mobiles: Recreate abstract Kandinsky paintings though tissue paper and wire.

Super Saturday for Kids starts at 9:45 a.m. and ends at 3:00 p.m.  A pizza lunch will be included. Drop-ins are welcome, but pre-registration guarantees your child a space. Tuition for this day-long event is $35 per CTAC Member child, or $40 per Non-Member child.

Parents and guardians can register at, or by calling Crooked Tree Arts Center at 231-347-4337. The Crooked Tree Arts Center is located at 461 E. Mitchell Street, downtown Petoskey, and at 322 Sixth Street, downtown Traverse City.
