funded by the lovely people just mentioned.
2009 Vashon Artists in the Schools Grants
Vashon Artists in the Schools is a collaborative partnership between
Vashon Allied Arts and the Vashon School District.
This year the multi-age benefitted from the expert help of Carolyn Candy to put on
Gerie Wilson's class performed an creative and beautiful collage of Chinese stories,
puppetry and more.
Glenda Berliner and Tina Taylor's class performed the play Goin' Buggy on
the big stage.
Also VIAS funded materials for back-stage curtains that are now a permanent part
of our stage.
We would all like to express our gratitude to Carolyn and the VAIS for helping
to provide these performance opportunities for our students.
