My first arts in education school visits were as an apprentice.
I think being an apprentice is a great way to learn something new.
The first step was taking a business/ art/ curriculum look at creating a program, then I followed my mentor for his school visits. And finally, I wrote a program that he observed.
I love being an Artist in Residence, I create programs that address the learning standards and contain meaningful curriculum content while boosting the students creativity, build school community and
are so much FUN!!
I have always LOVED it.
I once stood in front of a cafeteria of 1st graders, to begin a program, and when I took my artwork out and showed it to them .......... they gave me a standing ovation!
A STANDING OVATION from 6 year olds!!!
It was so loving and sweet I could have fainted.
I soaked it up.
If you want to visit schools, libraries and museums as
an artist in residence, I have good news! I am offering an
apprenticeship... an E-pprenticeship!
October 25 - November 15!!!
details coming soon!!!!
THIS is how excited I am! Isn't she cute!
