Ricks Center for Gifted Children at the University of Denver is an exemplary program designed for gifted children.

We provide nationally recognized gifted education to approximately 250 students ranging from ages three years old through eighth grade, who demonstrate exceptional, differentiated abilities and learning needs.

Our mission is to provide a dynamic and challenging educational environment that anticipates and responds to the individual, intellectual, social, emotional, physical, aesthetic, and cognitive needs of gifted children. 


Calling All Artists, Organizers, and Art Supporters!

Creative Connections - Spring Arts Event

We are putting together an Arts Event throughout the year with a celebration event in the Spring. 

We have some very talented people amongst us in our staff and in our Ricks Community.  This includes all arts - visual, performance, etc.  All throughout this year we will be inviting Visiting Artists to come in and work with the students. If you are an artist - professional or amateur we'd love to have you show off your talent and show off you and the kids' work at the Spring Event. 

We need all kinds of help: artists, creative types, organizers, and any support you might be able to offer either leading up to the event, the day/night of the event and anywhere in between.

More details can be found in the attached flyer. Please contact Karie at karie.wyckoff@du.edu with any questions and if you are able to help out.
