WonderRoot is partnering with the organization Foreverfamily (http://foreverfam.org) to connect teaching artists to work with their after school arts integration program. Foreverfamily works to ensure that, no matter what the circumstances, all children have the opportunity to be surrounded by the love of family. They focus their efforts on children with an incarcerated parent or parents, and support them as they, their parents, caregivers and extended families work to remain a family.
Students from Foreverfamily visited WonderRoot for a tour of the center and poetry workshop with WonderRoot member artist, Reed Dorty, and the following week, 6 actors from Village Theater worked with the kids in an improv comedy workshop.
Upcoming dates include:
- March 20- Visual Arts (Focus on Pop Culture and Self-Awareness)
- March 27- Drama (Focus on communication and decision making skills)
- May 1 – Creative Movement (Focus on self-actualization)
- May 15- Culminating Activity- Individual/Group Presentations
