Each year, I am hired to present a program for a number of educational institutions during the Spring. These programs are designed to teach students about art and technology.
Today I was brought in by the organization that sponsors these programs to be a part of a demonstration of the power and effectiveness of combining the arts with technology. Students and teachers from the surrounding area were in attendance to experience the many programs that comprise the Arts in Education.
Throughout many of the rooms in the 150 year old mansion were a number of art paintings and photos from students on display, along with drinks, food and entertainment (music and caricatures).
As I discussed my program with the teachers, I had many students, teachers and guests line up to have one of my fun quick B&W cartoon likenesses. Words cannot express how exciting it is to watch many of the “Big Kids” watch their students have a drawing and then decide to have one, too! 🙂
Thank you Sandy for organizing this and making it happen!
