Welcome to The Arts Room! From theater to music, dance, story, and the visual arts, we’ll be talking about what’s going on with the arts in our kids’ public schools in Bristol and Warren, Rhode Island, and what we can do to encourage more arts in school. We’ll be talking about what’s going on with the arts in our communities, from the latest show being staged at 2nd Story Theatre in Warren to the opening of a new exhibit at the Bristol Art Museum. We plan to create a go-to resource of local arts professionals for teachers who want to bring the arts into their classrooms, an arts-focused calendar for parents who want to bring more arts into their families’ lives, and a regular series spotlighting local arts venues and professionals that we hope will build the audience for the outstanding arts offerings in our communities. Big goals! We hope you’ll come along with us and join in the conversation as we work to strengthen our community with creativity and imagination!
