Fall 2020 Comments:
Native American Music and Dance Workshop (10/5/20 – Louis Mofsie) – The stories helped to put the artistry into perspective.
A Peace of Hate – Art through Collage, Painting and Poetry (10/19/20 – Dr. Nichelle Rivers) – She was an excellent presenter and got everyone involved, even the virtual people!
Mask Making for Día de los Muertos (10/26/20- Miguel Cossio) – I like the projects and I would love to try them with my students, they were very age appropriate.
Improvisation- YES! The Art of Risk! (11/2/20- Dr. Thomas Manuel) – This presenter was dynamic and personable and had so many useful things that could be applied to any area of discipline. At first I thought it was going to be geared more towards music teachers but in fact it transcended all subject matter and the ideas and content could be applicable in your own personal life as well as different subject matters whatever one may teach. Very worthwhile workshop!
Building Trust Through Process – A Two Part Workshop (11/9/20 Urban Bush Women) – Thank you for putting this workshop together. The Urban Bush Women are phenomenal. They did a great job in such a challenging environment. Thank you for hosting!!
