Afternoon workshops, 1:30-5:30
12 students will work with professional performer and director Jay O’Leary to develop and present an original performance for a major Coyote community gathering on August 18th at Dr. Blanche Lavizzo Park in the Central District.  The theme of the event is what it means to be American, and every member of the team will explore poetry, spoken word, music and movement to help put together a group performance that will engage the audience in a personal look at national identity.

Visual Arts Team:
Morning workshops, 9:00-1:00
12 students will create stage art for the “Define American” original performance described above on Saturday, August 18th. They will work with well-known public artist Carl Smool to express their own ideas about American identity in spectacular stage art using fabric, paper, cardboard, and other materials to create hangings and backdrops for the park stage.  In the process they’ll learn the tricks and techniques of professional stage set designers.

Each youth will earn up to $200 as a stipend for full participation and hard work.
