Description

Join us for a conversation on how mid–Michigan schools are integrating the arts into classrooms.

  • Learn more about the current practices and policies of teaching and learning in the arts as supported by the Kennedy Center Partners in Education program.
  • Hear from individuals creating and implementing arts integrated lessons in local K-12 classrooms.
  • Watch a riveting performance by actor David Harrell from his solo piece, "The Boy Who Would Be Captain Hook."

Come feel the impact of the arts in schools!

David Harrell is an international award winning actor, speaker and disability advocate residing in New York City. His award-winning solo play "A Little Potato and Hard to Peel" and his adaptation for young audiences "The Boy Who Would Be Captain Hook" have entertained audiences from off-Broadway houses to the country of Estonia. He was nominated in 2010 for a New York Innovative Theatre award for “Outstanding Solo Performance.”

Please note there is a 90 cent per half hour charge for parking in the ramp adjacent to Wharton Center.
