RiverCenter hosts event for the arts

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A program bringing art-integrated opportunities to area schools took place Thursday at the RiverCenter.

The event called "RiverCenter on the Road" was held Thursday morning, and a performer was present to share some stories hoping to inspire students to get involved with the arts.

Performing artist Thomas Johnson says the event is all about making sure art remains in schools.

Students were put into groups to come up with stories Johnson acted out in front of the students.
