In what has become somewhat a new Christmas tradition, Maroon 9 Community Enrichment
Organization will hold its 7th Annual Arts & STEM Intensive and Gift Giveaway for children ages 9
to 17 on Saturday, December 17, 2022, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater
Tarrant County-Nicholas & Louella Martin Branch

Participants who pre-register will enjoy a live DJ, catered lunch, giveaways, and a rotating schedule
of performing arts and STEM workshops. Ages 9-12 will participate in exploratory workshops,
while ages 13-17 will attend master classes in vocal music, theater, and dance at Urban Village
Family Services, located directly next door. All workshops and classes will be led by industry experts
and educators.

Participants should dress comfortably because all workshops will be interactive. To receive
Christmas gifts at the end of the event, all participants MUST attend the entire day. Although
parents are not required to attend, Urban Village Family Services will provide engaging and
informational parent workshops throughout the day.

This event is in collaboration with Boys & Girls Clubs of Tarrant County and Urban Village Family
