We’ve had a great week at many schools, with many creative students. We held drama classes at Courtade Elementary and workshops at Traverse Heights and Oak Park. Art Club at the Adult Work Center is in full swing, too. Some of our students enjoyed private tours of the newly renovated Old Town Playhouse, with more of those to come. Plus, there’s martial arts scheduled — and an interview with Jack O’Malley that will air on 9&10 News on March 14, 6 p.m.

We held an Art Fair at Oak Park with help from Phil Wilson of Blackbird Arts​, Miss Melinda from Kindermusik​ and ... African penguins?
