SPOKANE, Wash.-- Spokane students took over the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture in Spokane late Thursday for the first event of its kind.

Students from Roosevelt Elementary and their family visited the MAC after school hours in Browne’s Addition.  It was an idea called Passport to the Arts.

From music to dance and poetry to claymation, hundreds of students got to get hands on experience with the arts.  Organizers said the idea was to give students the opportunity to experience art within their own community.

The event was free to students and their family thanks to volunteers at the MAC and professional artists donating their time.

The principal hopes it will become an annual event.
