Arts Programming in Full Swing!
On February 3rd Teaching Artist, Chris Espinosa worked with teachers virtually at Region 7 on the writing process, from prompt to rough draft.

Here's what we heard from a few participating teachers.....

"I love incorporating creative movement with writing rather than the sit down and be still method"

"I have already written my lesson plans for many of the writing activities I learned from Chris!"

"I can't wait to introduce the Mythical Pet Persuasions activity to the students!"

Elizabeth Kahura will present
A Day in Africa to the students of Rusk Junior High on Monday February 22nd.

On March 24th, renowned percussionist and educator Mark Shelton will present Conduits for Creativity. Mark will inspire teachers virtually through Region 7 to channel their creative energy with easy activities.
