Experience ARTS

School:  Middle School of the Kennebunks  Date:  Spring 2015  Amount:  $2,525  Experience ARTS, a continuation of the program developed and conducted by River Tree Arts during February 2012 and June 2014, allows sixth grade students in small groups to experience hand-on learning in the area of their choice. Exhibiting artists and performing musicians will conduct workshops, chosen by the students, in areas such as visual arts, dance, metalsmithing/jewelry, music, juggling or yoga movement, clay, fabric painting, and theater improv. This program is a great way to show students that a career can be made in the arts and also to expose them to art forms they may otherwise not have a chance to explore.
