The Woodruff Arts Center is committed to reaching families and children in areas where a theater or symphony ticket, or a stroll through an art museum, is economically out of reach. Their main event, called CREATE ATL, is a free Sunday afternoon of art-making, interactive musical story times, hands-on instrument-making, drop-in acting classes and much more. Some 6,000 people attend each festival.
