Waterworks Visual Arts Center

Providing diverse opportunities in the arts for all people through exhibitions, education, & outreach programs.

5th Grade ARTstops

Waterworks Visual Arts Center continues our partnership with Rowan Salisbury public, private, independent and home schools to provide 
the 5th Grade ARTstops program for the 2018-19 school year. 
Scheduled dates and ARTstops reminders are listed below.

**5th Grade Private, Independent and/or Home schools' classes should call to schedule their ARTstops. 

5th Grade ARTstops are provided free of charge though the generosity of the
Margaret C. Woodson Foundation. 

ARTstop Reminders
  • Please plan to arrive at your scheduled time, 9:30 am for the first session and 11:30 am for the second session. We are unable to accommodate early arrivals. Busses should drop students off at the front entrance of Waterworks. Drivers should reference the attached Parking Map to locate available parking.


  • The maximum number of students Waterworks can accommodate per ARTstop is 50; students will be divided into two groups or classes upon arrival at Waterworks.


  • Each ARTstop is 1.5 hours. The ARTstop includes a 45-minute docent lead tour of the professional galleries and art center, and a 45-minute hands-on art activity relating to the current exhibition. The art projects and tours meet the Common Core Curriculum course of study for visual arts education.


  • You will receive a confirmation email one week prior to your school’s scheduled ARTstop. Please respond promptly to confirm your attendance and exact number of students.


  • When inclement weather impacts the Rowan-Salisbury Schools; they are closed or delayed, the ARTstops for that day will be cancelled. Waterworks will contact the school to reschedule the ARTstops.
