Workshop participants, boys aged between 6-14 will receive a dynamic presentation with Attorney Rose, who will guide the young men through the process of how to tie a bow tie. Attorney Rose is a longstanding advocate of Rhode Island's youth, and is widely appreciated for his energetic and impactful approach with young people. All young attendees will take home a new, designer bow tie to begin their own collection.
This workshop will offer the opportunity to explore other social protocols with veteran actor Robb Dimmick. Dimmick, a children's theater teacher, director, and writer, will lead young participants in a lively demonstration, rehearsing effective ways of introducing oneself and how to shake hands.
Following this workshop, participants will walk across the river to the RISD Museum in order to enjoy a free guided tour of the celebrated exhibit, Artist/Rebel/Dandy: Men of Fashion. This museum visit will foster a sense of style and its practical application in the professional world. The visit to the RISD Museum intends to encourage and cultivate an appreciation for the arts in all its myriad forms.
The Bow Tie for Boys workshop is part of an on-going youth outreach initiative of the Rhode Island Black Heritage Society. Last month, The Society held an elegant tea party/event for young ladies. Dr. Joyce Stevos, President of the Rhode Island Black Heritage Society expressed great enthusiasm for this project. The Society cherishes Rhode Island's youth and is committed to creatively connecting with them on an on-going basis. This summer marks a heightened involvement with the younger generations moving forward!
