I am happy to unveil the creation of RSU #22’s program for identified visually artistic students. This has been a labor of love as I hold a BFA in photographic illustration and the arts have always been a passion of mine.
Within RSU#22, we offer workshops for identified students who exhibit above average talent in the visual and performing arts; arts, music, theatre, and dance.
Students who are identified in these areas will be invited to 6 monthly workshops throughout the school. The goal of these workshops is to provide connections to professionals and peers that hold similar talents.
The application is due September 15, 2017.
RSU #22 is committed to supporting schools in the delivery of quality and effective PreK-12 visual and performing arts instruction. Research shows that students involved in the visual and performing arts are more successful in school, more involved in their communities and perform better on standardized tests. Engagement in the visual and performing arts deepens students’ overall knowledge as well as their social and emotional development.
I look forward to providing opportunities that will help enrich the visual and performing arts palette and exposure of the field’s landscape to the RSU #22 student body!
