Old School Square Cultural Arts Center
The center was created thanks to the determination of a local group of citizens who saved the 1913 Delray Elementary and 1925 Delray High School buildings from demolition after they were abandoned by the Palm Beach County School District in the mid 1980's.
A variety of special events and festivals take place at Old School Square throughout the year. Some are presented by Old School Square, the Cornell Museum or Crest Theatre. Others are presented by local/regional organizations. Old School Square also presents outdoor concerts at the Entertainment Pavilion.
Cornell Museum of Art & American Culture. The museum features regional, national and international exhibits of fine art, craft and American culture, which rotate every six to eight weeks. The museum also organizes an annual, All-Florida, fine art competition featuring multi-media paintings, sculpture and photography.
Classes & Workshops. Old School Square offers a variety of arts opportunities for adults and children. Classes and workshops are offered during fall, winter and spring/summer sessions. Summer Arts Camp is offered in July, and specialized tours are offered throughout the year to schools, out-of-school programs and summer camps.
Education Programs. Since 1993, Old School Square has been filling the void left by declining arts programs in the public schools. It is our belief that children benefit most from hands-on visual and performing arts.
- Kickin' Arts Club. Twenty-five residency days are offered to all Palm Beach County school students in grades 4 & 5. The program provides a full day at the cultural center and includes a tour of the historic buildings, a visual arts workshop, an interactive lunch, and a live on-stage activity in the Crest Theatre.
- Children's Theatre Series. Twice a year the Crest Theatre presents national tours of exceptional children`s programs for elementary and middle school students in the Delray Beach area.
- Children's Summer Theatre Series. The Crest Theatre presents two national tours of exceptional children's programs for summer camps, child-care facilities, children's organizations and to the public.
- Art FUNdamentals. A guided, 90-minute tour where participants analyze, interpret, and discuss the current exhibit in the Cornell Museum of Art and History.
- The Heritage Arts Program was developed by Old School Square to give area students exposure to other cultures and ethnic backgrounds through the arts. It is an eight-week, dance-anchored program offered twice a year at no cost to the students.
