The arts are alive in Rappahannock County schools and RAAC is there to support them with summer workshops, after-school enrichment classes, grants to faculty & students — and with a display of their work at the Fall Art Tour main gallery.
Collaborative murals and installations from Rappahannock schools surround the main gallery that features hundreds of works by studio and gallery artists participating on the Tour.
Six schools are represented this year — Rappahannock County High School, Rappahannock County Elementary School, Belle Meade Montessori School, Wakefield Country Day School, Fun in the Sun Summer Camp, and Hearthstone School.
Each was invited to create a collaborative mural or art installation with a theme of their choice. The teams of student artists range from kindergarteners to 12th graders. While each piece is unique, there are common threads that unite them — every child is creative & imaginative, and by working & problem-solving together they can create something valuable and beautiful.
The main gallery is open on Saturday, November 4 and Sunday, November 5 from 10 am until 5 pm. The show will thereafter be open for visitors through December 11, Monday -Thursday from 9 am until 4 pm and Fridays from 9 am until 2 pm. Admission is free.
Special thanks to the Washington School for welcoming the Rappahannock Schools art, and the public.
The Washington School is at 567 Mount Salem Avenue in the town of Washington.
