New RCPS and Taubman Museum Partnership Brings Creative Summer Art Camp to Students Beginning on Monday
For the first time, Roanoke City Public Schools and the Taubman Museum of Art are collaborating together to bring a summer art camp to Roanoke City middle school students. Students will stretch their imagination and expand their art skills during the summer camp. Each week of camp will explore a wide variety of art techniques and materials.
Campers will have opportunities to learn about the art and artists in the galleries and they will be encouraged to create their own masterpieces. Classes will be taught by Roanoke City teachers and local artists. Transportation will be provided to and from the schools, and all supplies will be provided.
Camps will take place Monday through Thursday from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm. An art show will take place on Thursday of each week, showcasing the work by students for their friends and family to enjoy.
