Rawls Museum Arts Educational Outreach Program is dedicated to making art come alive to area students by exposing them to all areas of art and career exploration. Students participating in this program experience the creative process first-hand and enhance their appreciation of visual arts. RMA’s Art Educational Outreach Program is offered at no cost to the participating schools except for transportation and partial help with field trips.
