Rowan College of South Jersey (RCSJ) will host its “Behind the Scenes" Open House and Ice Cream Bowl Fundraiser at the Arts and Innovation Center (AIC), in Millville, on Friday, August 19. The Open House takes place from 5-8 p.m., while the Ice Cream Bowl Fundraiser runs from 2-8 p.m. This free event is open to the public and gives RCSJ an opportunity to inform attendees of the multifaceted programs that exist within the building.
“We would like people to be aware … that they are welcome to participate in the many programs that the College has to offer, specifically here at the Arts and Innovation Center," said Jackie Sandro-Greenwell, director of Fine Arts and Clay College.
“[We have] everything from pottery classes, degree programs in the Communications and Creative & Performing Arts Division (CCPA) or career opportunities in Career and Technical Education (CTE) – like Home Healthcare Training, Phlebotomy and HiSet Testing. There is also a beautiful retail store to purchase and support local artisans and student artists."
The “Behind the Scenes" Open House and Ice Cream Bowl Fundraiser, which takes place on 3rd Friday, includes the NJ Artists Society Exhibit, two pottery workshops, an animal sculpting class, and a gallery walk. Participants will also have the chance to bring home their own handmade ornament painting from the event's free make-and-take activity.
Sandro-Greenwell, among others, is excited about the Ice Cream Bowl Fundraiser, which is making its long-awaited return after a two-year hiatus. “Buy a bowl and get free ice cream with toppings," said the director. “Prices for bowls range from $5 on up!"
