The Art-Rageous Experience provides art instruction and supplies for young artists, ages 4-14 with participating family members in the Greenville, Ohio, and other rural communities in Darke County. Students gain skills in innovation as they learn self-expression and are encouraged toward creative risk taking. Their overall growing experience and their academic achievement are enhanced by the Art-Rageous Experience.
Janelle Vargo instructs the student artists to provide both quality art lessons and a valuable family experience. The students show their work at the Darke County Fair, the Darke County Visitors Bureau and the Greenville Art Guild. Art-Rageous plans to visit local parks including the Shawnee Prairie Nature Center and hopes to expose the students to local artists. Space for the classes is provided by the Darke County Council on Rural Services.
