The 2020   11th ANNUAL MAKE Youth Arts Festival is on Saturday, March 21, 10 am- 4 pm.

MAKE is a free arts festival for young people aged 3 - 18 to experience, explore and enjoy creating art. Children take what they’ve made home with them. The activity tables are open all day until 3 pm. We seek activities that do not require a start and end time.  Although the age range of children at the event is 3 to 18, not all activities have to appeal to all ages. We are interested in proposals of all art forms, e.g., writing, ceramics, craft of all kinds, sculpture MAKING THINGS! Supplies are provided and artists can receive a stipend for their participation. 

Proposal Deadline - February 28th.
Call Laurie McKenna with any questions 432-4866 or email

Make is an annual all-day festival that provides immersive arts experiences to local children and their families, all free of charge. A wide range of activities are taught by locally-based creative professionals. These include workshops in various visual arts media, writing, theater, dance, film, etc., as well as performance opportunities.


MAKE provides interactive, multicultural, and multidisciplinary arts experiences. It celebrates art created by young people, and exposes youth to the diversity of the arts through quality performances, exhibitions, and hands-on arts activities.  At MAKE, kids learn new skills at fantastic free activities such as monotype and block printing, figure drawing, t-shirt screen printing, making matchbox retablo shrines and clay finger puppets.


Each year, our gallery features a youth art exhibition. As the only comprehensive arts center in Southeastern Arizona, CSP is uniquely positioned to offer extensive youth art programming to area children. Since its inception, CSP has consistently partnered with community youth and arts organizations including the Bisbee Unified School District, the Bisbee Arts Commission, and the Bisbee Boys and Girls Club, among others, to offer Youth Arts Programs.
