Young participants in a summer arts program will display what they’ve learned for their parents tonight following a class hosted by members of ARTree, an organization of volunteers who promote the arts among local youth.

Kids age 8 to 12 participated in 14 different visual- and performing-art classes once a week at the Santa Clarita Community Center in Newhall during the summer.

This year’s theme for the classes was “urbanology,” said Dianne Foderaro, education chair for ARTree. Class options ranged from hip hop dance to painting cityscapes on old newspapers.

“A lot of times, kids in our valley make it to the beach and theme parks, but they don’t have a taste of the city,” Foderaro said. “We hoped to share something that was a little out of their normal routine.”

Tonight’s performance from 6-7:30 p.m. is called a celebration.

“We always have a celebration when we teach,” Foderaro said. “We try to honor the kids who spent their time creating visual and performing arts.”

Due to limited space at the Santa Clarita Community Center, the celebration is by invitation only.
