How to adapt your artistic gifts to school policies, regulations, and curriculum structure

The Powder River Symphony is pleased to announce a grant from the Dana Foundation to support a workshop for performing artists interested in working with students and teachers in the public schools. The workshop will include a presentation by Dr. Eugenie Burkett, curriculum specialist, on creating activities that focus on the Wyoming and National Standards for Education with break-out sessions for artists to design and write lesson plans.

Michael Pangburn of the South Dakota Arts Council and Camelia El-Antably of the Wyoming Arts Council will both be making presentations during the day. Stipends of $100 for up to 30 performing artists are available to pay for expenses associated with attending the workshop. With ensembles, only 1 stipend will be furnished per group.

The workshop is scheduled for Thursday, October 9 and will run from 9 am to 2 pm at the Lakeway Learning Center in Gillette, WY. Although the workshop focuses primarily on the performing arts, artists of all genres are invited to attend. To register send an e-mail to: genieburkett@yahoo.comand. A registration form will be e-mailed to you along with a schedule and directions to the workshop site.
