Artist in residency is all about bringing learning to life through the arts. Collaborating with the classroom teacher to integrate the arts into the classroom would be an essential part of the residency. Connecting the curriculum to the art forms of music and puppetry will engage students and make learning fun. Students will be expected to create (maybe a puppet or song) and perform musically with instruments, songs and puppets. Learning to collaborate with classmates and learning to respect all levels of skill will be paramount as we create and perform. Teachers and students will discover how easily a story can become a musical, theatrical performance that also teaches a life lesson.
