ANNUAL ONE GIANT TRY IT! OFFERS FREE ARTS PROGRAMMING FOR ALL AGES



The Arts Center of the Capital Region in Troy, NY has 14 studios, performance spaces and galleries, all of which will be open to the public on March 19, 12-3PM.

Adults and children alike can explore our art studios and engage in interactive workshops. ACCR studios are housed in historic 19 th century buildings, and overlook beautiful Downtown Troy at Monument Square. 

Throughout the day, friends and family will experience art making first hand. Join international performer extraordinaire Aaron Marquise in our Black Box Theater for an exclusive look at circus and performance art. Salsa your way into our dance studio and learn the basics of On-One Salsa with David Aloka and Vivian Wilson. Learn how to create and demo Tech Valley Game Space video games on a giant projection screen. Experience our expansive pottery studios and learn about ceramic arts, work with the wheel, and explore all things clay! Join teaching artist Jeanine Mitchell in our multi-purpose studio for the ultimate summer art camp preview.

Other interactive art mediums available include drawing, painting, jewelry, photography, and more! 

Instructors and staff will be available to talk about the Center’s classes for adults and summer camps for children and teens. Summer camps are one week immersions into a broad range of arts materials, processes and the imagination. This year the ACCR will also be featuring Creative Every Day from 1-2PM in our Main Gallery. Join Ira Marcks, comic book artist and author of Creative Every Day, as he tells the engaging, and surprisingly entertaining story of his background as an artist and educator. His best known comic book, Creative Every Day, gives readers a peek into in the lives of 40 of the Capital Region’s most creative individuals.

During Try It! the Center is offering an additional 10% discount on all summer classes and camps with opportunities to win a free camp or class or membership.
