Kerr Arts and Cultural Center is pleased to announce the addition of an Education Director to our dedicated staff, thanks to a generous grant from Majestic Ranch Arts Foundation.
Grace Roach, a talented Arts Educator with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from UT-Tyler, will be working to expand and diversify the educational programs of KACC, beginning with an in-depth assessment of the desires and needs of our community. Roach will focus in particular on creating educational opportunities that are not being offered by other area arts organizations.
KACC’s goal is to create art programming that will have broad appeal and that will improve the quality of arts education in the Hill Country communities that KACC serves. With the addition of this new position, KACC will be in a position to provide high quality, instructional classes, and new art appreciation opportunities to our existing members and to expand our services to reach currently underserved groups in the community.
Originally from East Texas, Roach moved to Kerrville last year to pursue her passion for arts education, and to fulfill her dream of living in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. She began her teaching career in the Hill Country by teaching junior high art in Lindale ISD, and she currently teaches K-5 art at Nimitz Elementary. She is married to her junior high sweetheart, Jake Roach, who is also a teacher and a coach for Kerrville ISD.
