WHAT'S NEW IN 2016?
Exciting plans are underway for Richland Academy of the Arts in downtown Mansfield. We are able to access more space in our 47,000 square foot building that had previously been leased out. With the return of the additional space it gives us an opportunity to grow, develop new programs and add new teachers to our operations; Arts Track, Recreational Arts Track and Education/Development Program. These additions are all in response to requests made to our registrar and by surveys.
For many years Richland Academy has focused on pre-professional development in all art forms and especially dance with a very high level of artistry. We also realize that all persons are not poised for an arts career, but want to experience the arts for sheer enjoyment and satisfaction. Our Senior Program for 60+ is an example where participants had always wanted to dance to play the piano or to paint, but did not have the opportunity. We are reorganizing our art tracks to include a new emphasis on Recreational Arts…for all ages.
In all art genres we will offer Drop- In- Classes, Multiple Lengths of Classes, Senior Classes, Birthday Parties, Homeschool Programs and Autistic and Special Needs Classes. Dance- Belly Dancing, African-Am, Hip Hop, Ballroom, Theatre Jazz, Competitive Dance Team.
Music- Music for Hispanics & Latinos- guitar & piano, Bagpipes, Kids Rock, Junior Rockers, Garage Band – tutoring and Mommy & me.
Visual Arts- Crafts & Projects, Wine & Art, Pre-School Family Paint (Clay) Night.
Theatre- Comedy & Improv.
A recent survey indicated that parents are looking for an arts centered certified pre-school. Our plans are to open in the fall of 2016. In addition our community is lacking in pre-care and after school care and ours would be with an arts focus. Classes for Homeschooled children will be offered in all arts genres. We are eager to partner with Children’s Services and their Kinship program where grandparents are raising their grandchildren. Arts classes for Autistic and Special needs students.Continuing our outreach to community centers and traditional/charter schools.
RAA continues to be aware of the economic condition in our county and surrounding areas. Our scholarship program is even more significant at a time when the economic recovery is very slow and the median income is below the national level.
