Gifts of Learning

Deep in thought
Deep in thought

After a great day of teaching, I feel like there is no doubt that we can change the world through the arts. My students for the day light up when I'm there. They made new connections and their teachers were so impressed at what they had been able to accomplish in such a short time. Then I think about how much we could accomplish with more time! And I think about how many more classrooms there are in that school, and how many more schools there are that have no arts integration presence at all. And suddenly, it all just feels like there is too much work to be done. That’s when I realize that those teachers are really the key. They are there every day with their students, all year round, year after year with a new class. And if they had even a few of the tools I have to help them reach all their students in more meaningful ways through the arts, then the impact of the work we do will go on and on. This is why doing Professional Development Workshops through Story Tapestries is so important. The gift that keeps on giving!

Literacy is not just about teaching children & adults to read & write. It is about people discovering the power of the written word to help them reach for their dreams. If you agree with this statement, please re-post it! Share this project report with friends and family, or simply mention Story Tapestries in conversation. 

Wishing you all the best this Holiday Season!

Happy Holidays!

Learning together
Learning together

For Story Tapestries, arts integration goes much deeper than just being a tool for learning; it creates a way to weave our stories together to create community. It helps us belong. However, the bleak reality is that too many people have never had the opportunity to be enriched by the arts. While there are many reasons why this happens, most often the reason people don’t get to experience arts integration is painfully simple yet seemingly unavoidable: funding was unavailable. And almost always, the people who suffer the most from the absence of art tend to lack access and privilege. They’re essentially left behind, and possibly miss out on learning something that could dramatically shape their lives.

Thank you for your generosity and thank you for being a part of helping to improve the lives of individuals throughout the country.

 

Happy Holidays!
