Children's Program

The children’s program is an immersive art event which fosters activities that actively engage children’s imagination through 1. music, 2. visual arts, 3. movement and dance, and 4. drama and storytelling

IAP is an extension of the Art Education Program (AEP) which is designed for new and former art enthusiasts seeking to experience art in all its forms. We modeled our program and projects to be inclusive and diverse, using the 5 pillars of art. Traditional categories within the arts domains are 1. Literature (including poetry, drama, story, and so on), the visual arts (painting, drawing, sculpture, etc.), the graphic arts (painting, drawing, design, and other forms expressed on flat surfaces), the plastic arts (sculpture, modeling), the decorative arts (enamelwork, furniture design, mosaic, etc.), 2. The performing arts (theatre, dance, music), 3. music (as composition), and 4. architecture (often including interior design) and at the Rossetti Foundation for the Arts & Culture we also include 5. Culinary Arts.

An immersive experience in story-telling

Embarking on a journey of youthful enchantment, RFAC introduces its captivating children’s summer program. Open to children aged 6 to 12, this immersive storytelling experience intertwines with the vivid imaginations of young minds. Under the visionary guidance of our program director, cherished childhood fairytales find new life through innovative twists. Music, visual arts, movement, dance, and the magic of storytelling converge to kindle imagination.

Children's Mural

Step into the world of creativity at our children’s mural, where young artists are empowered to unleash their inner creativity in a collaborative and supportive environment. Whether in small or large groups, children come together to socialize, learn, and express themselves freely.

This mural project is more than just painting on a wall—it’s a journey of self-discovery and expression for children of all abilities. Even children with broad spectrum autism find a pathway to communicate non-verbally through art, fostering a sense of belonging and inclusion.

Art Therapy

Participants engage in a variety of art therapy workshops that cater to different interests and abilities. These workshops may include drawing, painting, sculpture, collage-making, and mixed media projects. Through guided exercises and creative prompts, participants are encouraged to express their thoughts, feelings, and experiences through artistic expression.
