Cruces Creatives offers several programs to serve our community in education, economic development, arts, environmental protection, and scientific development.
We currently provide a weekday and Saturday option at Cruces Creatives, and we also lead after-school programs at Alameda, Columbia, Loma Heights, and Conlee elementary schools.
Additionally, throughout the year, we offer summer camps and special STEAMM workshops.
