Visual Art Program


RHAP provides classes and one-on-one tutoring to children and youth who have shown a previous dedication to their artistic talent.

Homework Help


“Believe in yourself and you can do unbelievable things.”

On Monday through Thursday afternoons and evenings RHAP volunteer tutors provide Homework Help to all of our Visual Art and Music students.

We have discovered that our students, even if they are extremely talented in Visual Art and Music, sometimes need help with their schoolwork. And we have some wonderful tutors who are not artists or musicians but want to help these amazing children and youth!
