The Center for Visual Arts and Museum Studies offers a four-year advanced program for students who are talented and motivated in the visual arts. Students accepted into the program will participate in accelerated and enriched artistic experiences that integrate studio work, research, critique and aesthetics in the visual arts and museum studies.
Some classes will take place at the Art Museum of Western Virginia. Parents must transport students to A. R. Burton. Roanoke County Public Schools will provide bus transportation back to the home school only.
