Hands On 2016 - Japan
"Hands On" is a program created, funded and implemented by The Contemporaries of CAC as a multidisciplinary field trip for third grade students learning about the culture of different times, people and places. Each two hour session is divided into four 25 minute segments. For many of the more than 2,400 students who attend, Hands-On is their first and perhaps only interactive experience with theater and an art gallery and a chance to learn about the world beyond their community.
Because the Contemporaries realize the importance of a meaningful learning experience, all the activities and information are carefully designed to support classroom objectives and state standards.
The Contemporaries are volunteers who support the Cultural Activities Center. Our purpose is to support the educational, cultural and civic affairs of the community and to further this end by dedicated volunteer service and financial support to the CAC. 'Hands On' and 'Arts in Education' are examples of how our volunteers contribute to the community. If this sounds like something you would enjoy, please contact the CAC for membership information.
