This will be a family-friendly event with refreshments and art activities.

Through UC Berkeley’s Bridging the Arts program, Cal students develop innovative arts curricula and teach K-12 students at Coronado Elementary School in Richmond, Richmond High School, Helms Middle School in San Pablo, and Westlake Middle School in Oakland. Bridging the Arts student instructors expand access to the arts while providing K-12 students with tools for critical investigation and analysis. Through hands-on projects, students explore their creative potential.
