C3 Program Spaces

C3 Studio

The Studio is a place where your creativity can get messy.  A variety of hands-on art making programs for children and adults take place in this space.  Visitors of all ages are welcome to drop-in to the Studio on Saturdays and Sundays for Studio Creations.

C3 Tech Lab

The Tech Lab is the space where art and technology merge to inspire your creativity.  We invite visitors of all ages and skill levels to experiment with and use technology in unique ways to respond to works of art in the Museum's collection and create original artwork.  Stop by the Tech Lab during our monthly Late Night event to participate in the Late Night Art Bytes program.  Teen and tween programs also take place in this space.

C3 Theater

The C3 Theater is a comfortable space where we host storytellers, performances, and lectures during special events such as First Tuesdays and Late Nights.  At times this space is used to display video installations from the Museum's collection.
