Rochelle Riley: Jovan Art Discovery Camp at the DIA

Thursday July 12, 2012

Guest host Rochelle Riley speaks with Detroit City Council member Saunteel Jenkins about the Jovan Art Discovery Camp, which is currently running at the Detroit Institute of Arts. The camp is a pilot partnership between the Jovan Foundation, the DIA and Big Brothers Big Sisters and brings 50 fourth and and fifth grade children from the Detroit Public Schools to the DIA once a week to learn about art. The kids spend the first half of their day exploring the galleries and learning how to "interpret" art and spend the second half in an art studio creating their own pieces. For more information, contact the DIA at (313) 833-7900.
