Carnegie Hall accepting creative class proposals

Carnegie Hall is seeking proposals for the 2014-2015 school year from artists who wish to present Creative Classrooms in the public school systems in our region.

Creative Classrooms are hands-on art integration workshops offered to supplement the curriculum classrooms across the Greenbrier Valley. These two-hour workshops give school children of all ages the opportunity to try out new art forms in their own classroom.

Creative Classrooms cover a variety of topics, including astronomy, gourd art, origami, puppets and poetry, patchwork placemats, clay sculpture, juggling, short stories and printmaking.

Instructors will attend an orientation session sponsored by Carnegie Hall.

Selected workshops should demonstrate a connection between the art form presented and curriculum goals outlined by the West Virginia Department of Education's Content Standards and Objectives, available for review at http://wvde.state.wv.us/csos/.  

The Creative Classroom program will serve schools in Greenbrier, Monroe, Pocahontas and Summers counties next year.

The deadline for submitting a proposal is May 23. Proposal forms can be found under the Education tab at www.carnegiehallwv.org, or in the office at 105 Church St. in Lewisburg.

For more information, contact Leah Trent 304.645.7917 or e-mail trent@carnegiehallwv.org.

    How is it possible that as your nest gets emptier, your garage gets fuller? Living off the grid sounds tantalizing — the extreme version of paring down. But are you ready for solar panels and growing your own groceries or would a smaller home do the trick?
