~ Restorative Arts Project (R.A.P.) ~
Reaching Children, Reaching Families & Restoring Communities
Child Evangelism Fellowship of Mississippi, Inc., (CEF) currently serves children within the state of Mississippi in nine counties in partnership with ten school districts in our Good News Clubs and after school programs.
CEF of MS is proud to present our Restorative Arts Project (RAP) which sets as its priority enhancing and expanding the creative voice of children in Mississippi through artistic expression. Our project recognizes that reaching children can restore families, who will then rebuild communities.
Our project includes on site or virtual instruction to introduce young people, grades preschool to 12th, to artistic expression. All the children in grades preschool -12th, will be encouraged to present their favorite artistic work at a summer art fair for their family and friends. For those children interested, each CEF Chapter will provide artistic instruction to assist them in creating the art project of their choice. At the end of the summer, the art projects will be presented before their families and community members at the art show/ contest. The three best projects from the preschool through 1st grade group, the 2nd – 5th grade group, the 6th – 8th grade group, and from the 9th through 12th grade group will receive a prize and be invited to present their project at the Statewide Arts exhibit for special recognition.
