Dear ArtsAlive!
Thank you so much for sponsoring our 2017 trip to Lincoln Center on May, 19th.

Students participated in a a backstage tour, heard an open-rehearsal of the NY Philharmonic featuring Alan Gilbert, and attended an evening performance featuring Wynton Marsalis and the music of Count Basie and Duke Ellington at Jazz at Lincoln Center. Many students commented on how much they learned that day and that it was the best enrichment field trip they had taken all year. Without a doubt, all students had a fantastic time and it was a fun-filled day celebrating our love of music!

Pottery wheel workshops with Simon Leach



November 28th, 2016

Grades: 10-12

Simon demonstrated many techniques on the pottery wheel and helped individual students on the pottery wheel. He worked nonstop from 8:15-1:45 with students from Ceramics and Sculpture, ad. ceramics and sculpture, photo, and other art students, with 20-25 students in each class period

Students did not want to leave when the bell rang at the end of the periods. They loved it! Simon was even better than last year.  He made so many forms that just amazed the students.  He was very encouraging to the students on the pottery wheels, working 1:1 with them.
