The Recreation Division of the McAllen Parks and Recreation Department works hard to develop a variety of Arts & Crafts course offerings for the youth of McAllen and the surrounding communities. In conjunction with the McAllen International Museum, specially designed arts and crafts classes are offered to kids ranging in age from 4 to 12. The Summer Theatre program gives those with a theatrical flair an opportunity to audition, rehearse, and perform a musical. And the Airbrush Art program offers artists the chance to learn a new artistic tool.
- Cultural Arts & Crafts
- The Parks and Recreation Department, in cooperation with the McAllen International Museum, provides arts and crafts activities for the youth of McAllen. These programs are specially designed for age groups 4 and 5 years old, 6 through 8 years old, and 9 through 12 years old. There will be supervision during the lunch hour. Children can bring a sack lunch for the break between classes.
- Summer Theatre
- The Summer Theatre Program will include the rehearsal and performance of a musical, including all aspects of technical production. We are looking for a maximum "company" of 50 (cast & crew). Performances will be given at Nikki Rowe High School Auditorium in July.
