Have you considered providing Saturday workshops in Art and the other subjects disappearing from our schools. As detailed below Michelle Obama has stressed the importance of bringing the Arts back to our children.
Workshops are great as you can involve more students and charge less due to numbers.
First Lady Michelle Obama spoke about the importance of arts education at the Grammy Museum’s Jane Ortner Education Award Luncheon, emphatically declaring “we cannot be satisfied until every child has some exposure to the arts.”
Noting 6 million American school children have no music or arts classes in the schools, Obama said “you all have an abundance of riches here in Los Angeles and yes, we do we have a pretty big platform at the White House. But let’s not forget there are symphonies and theaters and museums and with every exhibit and performance folks should be asking themselves how can we get those kids in there? How can we get the artists and performers to connect with young people in those communities? In other words, every arts organization in the country should be embracing the mission of the Grammy Museum.”
The event, held at Club Nokia in the downtown L.A. Live complex, honored Janelle Monae and teacher Sunshine Cavalluzzi for their efforts in teaching and mentoring young people. Calluzzi, a teacher at El Dorado High School in Placentia, Calif., uses music to teach subjects such as economics; Monae has been active participant in the Grammy Museum’s educational efforts.
Monae reflected on her youth in Kansas City, Kan., where “music helped me deal with my emotions. I was able to write a song or perform or write a short story,” she said, before thanking her fifth grade teacher, a music teacher and her mother who drove her to countless talent shows.
“Keep educating through music,” Monae said before closing the afternoon with a four-song set of “Sincerely Jane,” Queen,” “Tightrope” and a cover of James Brown’s “I Got You (I Feel Good).” “I hope we have more mentors than superstars. I’m happy to have mentors in Stevie Wonder and Prince.”
Monae’s speech followed comments from Recording Academy president and CEO Neil Portnow and Grammy Museum executive director Bob Santelli, who discussed the museum-sponsored trips to the White House for nearly 1,000 students and the programs that bring students face-to-face with musicians.
