a free youth arts festival

Each year in the month of March, CSP celebrates National Youth Arts Month with the MAKE Youth Arts Festival. It is an all-day arts festival for children from age 3 to 17 which provides interactive, multidisciplinary hands-on artmaking at no cost to families. MAKE also celebrates art created by young people with the Youth Art exhibit. The gallery is filled with art made during the school year with BUSD art teachers and other schools in our region!


Goals of MAKE Fest
  • Exhibit artwork made by Bisbee and outlying vicinity’s youth. 

  • Include musical performances by the middle and high school music department

  • Foster a keen sense of the value of art-making in a variety of forms.

  • Have activities that develop critical thinking, communication, innovation appreciation, self-expression, patience, and cooperation skills.


Central School Project is a non-profit arts and cultural center with the three-fold mission of providing affordable creative space to working artists, preserving and adapting the historic Central School building as a cultural center, and fostering appreciation of the arts in the Bisbee community.
