RISD & the Mt. Hope Learning Center will partner once again for a special Day of Service event.  The day will include running arts and crafts workshops for local children and engaging them with games, activities, and conversation.  The day also includes other special projects at the school and a series of celebratory performances. Volunteers will have a chance to work with some enthusiastic children and RISD students while engaging them in conversation about their interests in art.

Food, t-shirts, and transportation will be provided.
