ARTS FIRST is Harvard University’s annual four-day festival showcasing student and faculty creativity.

In addition to the many music, dance and other offerings at the festival’s signature Performance Fair on Saturday, April 29, 11:30 am – 5:00 pm, various “Make Art” stations will offer attendees opportunities to engage in participatory activities, including figure drawing; wheel-throwing ceramics; acting Shakespeare; folding origami; and “Build a Bug”—creating arthropod sculptures inspired by real specimens from the Harvard Museum of Natural History.
