This July, the Greenville Arts Council is hosting a literacy program called Arts Advantage for rising 2nd-5th grade students in conjunction with the Greenville Public School District. This family-friendly, free program will be held every Tuesday and Thursday from 2-4pm in July. The curriculum is based on The Kennedy Center‘s ArtsEdge Program and takes a hands-on, arts-based approach to basic reading, writing, and math skills. Lessons are organized thematically and will feature special guests who will perform demonstrations. No supplies are necessary to participate. To volunteer, please click here.
