ArtsRising Prepares for Back-to-School

With back-to-school season in full swing, ArtsRising was out and about at events hosted to help youth and their families gear up for the new school year.  The ArtsRising team participated in Beeber Middle School’s new student orientation, State Representative Tony Peyton Jr.’s back-to-school fair at Frankford High School, and the West Philadelphia EPIC stakeholders back-to-school fair, bringing along with them information about ArtsRising and a splash of color featuring student artwork. 

ArtsRising connected with parents, youth, and community members interested in bringing arts opportunities to their schools and communities, and provided more information about programming and ways to get involved.  These events were a great debut for “Arts on the Go” a traveling exhibition of youth artwork from Beeber Middle School.  The mini-installation of the works drew lots of attention from fair-goers making the impact of ArtsRising come to life.
