Integrated Arts Club at Denton's MLK 2011/2012



I developed an arts program at MLK recreation center in Denton, TX in the 2011/2012 school year, in conjunction with the Nick Cave Artists in Residency at UNT, the Graduate Student Art Education Association and in partnership with  my talented actor/musician husband, EARL BATES.  We teamed up along with the help of some fabulous undergrad students to present programming once a week that incorporated art, drama, dance and percussion.  It lasted 6 months and served dozens of kids. I learned that combining the arts with technology was a sure way to involve even the most recalcitrant kid .  I provide a link to some  You Tubes of their self- created costumed dances.
