SMARTS enjoyed time with family, friends, and the community at the annual SMARTS Holiday Open House, which took place here at SMARTS on Dec. 5, 2023. This event included hands-on arts activities for students and adults alike, and featured SMARTS teaching artist demonstrations.

Much to our excitement, the event also included a ribbon cutting ceremony on the SMARTS Richard James Hanson Library! The event saw more than 150 attendees, and local news and media outlets visited SMARTS throughout the event. Please read more about this event in any (or all!) of the media links below!
