In the course of many years of working with children, parents and teachers we have discovered that a wonderful offshoot of us helping to instill the love of reading in our students – our students are writing! So, as a result of this wonderful discovery, we have begun an initiative simply entitled, “ROLLING READERS WRITES”.
Our "Rolling Readers Writes" program is designed to encourage our readers to create, dream, reach, grow and imagine a world of possibilities.
Since opening in 1978, the Foosaner Art Museum (originally the Brevard Art Center and Museum) has amassed nearly 5,000 objects, spanning 2,000 years of creative history. The Foosaner Art Museum's permanent collection includes works by 20th-century Central Florida artists, Asian ceramics and metalwork, Modern and Contemporary works on paper; specific strengths include the photographs of Florida artist and environmentalist, Clyde Butcher (b. 1942); the Conill Mendoza Collection of American Industrial Design; and the world's largest collection of art the German Impressionist, Ernst Oppler (1897 - 1929)
The creative center of the Foosaner is our Renee Foosaner Education Center, an active studio for fine arts courses of all media. Throughout the year, the Foosaner offers a changing selection of exhibitions and educational programming for children and adults.
Through Foosaner Art Museum's DRAWS program, children will illustrate stories written by kids in the Rolling Readers programs.
