I will be flying to Detroit at the end of March to lead a workshop for the teaching artists of the Detroit Creativity Project. The group's mission: Faced with a challenging economy and tightening budgets, schools nationwide have substantially reduced funding for arts programming. The Detroit Creativity Project (DCP) was founded in 2011 by working artists who believe that arts education provides a critical element of learning for all students, and is not an expendable part of the curriculum. Whether painting, playing music, or taking the stage, the arts allow students to develop skills they need now and in the future. http://detroitcreativityproject.org
I'm very excited about this opportunity to meet, work, and create, with people outside of my Los Angeles community!
