Calling all artists, teachers of art, arts organizations and art lovers!
Join a community discussion, Joining Hands: Education and Arts Advocacy in Our Changing Times, on Tuesday, January 25 from 6:30-8:30 pm at the St George Branch of the Washington County Library System.
On Tuesday, January 25, from 6:30-8:30 pm, we’ll gather to hear a discussion on how the community and arts educators can work together for the betterment of students.
Questions to be addressed include:
• What are the advantages for arts-engaged students?
• What role do the arts play in preparing young people for success?
• What can the community do to ensure "arts-rich" school programs?
The evening will include a short ensemble presentation, compliments of Tuachan High School students and also a choral work by students from Lava Ridge Intermediate School!
Moderated by JJ Abernathy, panelists include Aimee Bonham, Visual Artist; Jason Bonham, Director of Music, Tuacahn High School; Dr. Norman Fawson, Physician, Symphony founder and strings instructor in the Washington County Schools; Caroline Harris, Choral Director, Lava Ridge Intermediate School; and Ferron Holt, Director of Fine Arts, Washington County School District
This exciting event is sponsored by the Washington County Arts Council and the Washington County Library System, and is the second in a series to be held throughout spring. The seminars will be held in a variety of locations and will be co-sponsored by a County organization. The topics were selected from suggestions made by community citizens.
