After-school arts program brings creativity to Rockbridge County kids

By Liza Moore

The Buena Vista Arts Council partnered with the Y after-school program to bring a variety of art classes to Enderly Heights Elementary students.

Thanks to the new partnership between the Buena Vista Arts Council and the Y, art lessons took over the after-school program during September. Twice a week, volunteers from the BV Arts Council led crafts such as 3D hand drawings, salt paintings, and tempera stain glass paintings. Over 130 students in Rockbridge County are part of the Y after school program.
