ArtsPlace Final Showcase

The Rockford Area Arts Council’s teen apprenticeship program, ArtsPlace, will culminate in three final showcases for the public.  ArtsPlace, which integrates career-readiness skills into the curriculum, is an immersive arts program for high school students who wish to spend eight weeks in the summer studying visual arts, dance, theater, or creative writing with a professional teaching artist.  RAAC offers ArtsPlace at no cost to ensure that it is accessible to every student regardless of ability to pay, and RAAC has offered the program continuously for over twenty years.  This year’s teen apprentices explored the theme of “Found.”  All proceeds from ticket and art sales go directly to the teen apprentices.
