Roswell Independent School District's Elementary Arts Program

Our teachers, whose home base is the Creative Learning Center, travel to all elementary schools each week to bring visual and performing arts lessons to all K-5 students. Special arts experiences are planned during the school year for 6th graders. Our lessons are designed to not only meet the NM Arts Standards and Benckmarks, but to integrate Arts Concepts into the other core curriculum.

Our Mission

The Mission of the RISD Elementary Arts Integration Program, Arts Connect, is to enhance learning for K-6 students and their teachers through opportunities for creative growth in dance, music, theatre, and visual arts.


1. To provide opportunities for creative self-expression
2. To improve arts instruction
3. To fully integrate the arts into the curriculum
4. To enhance students' academic succes
