Ben Franklin leads you through key events in history. We still believe in the power of the arts to educate. What better way to learn history than from someone who lived it?

Northeastern Native American cultures, histories and traditions through my writing and storytelling or workshop programs in which students write their own poems and stories and/or do their own storytelling. Also, themes of respect for one’s self and others, conflict resolution, and character development are built into all of my presentations.

Arithmetickles is an interactive Math Game show that uses audience participation and comedy in fast-paced math segments to capture the attention of students in grades K-8. Arithmetickles makes math jump off the page and onto the stage and changes how kids think of math!

In addition to the wonderful reading themes, these shows engage students with important positive messages including self-esteem, anti-bullying, safety, basic visualization & goal setting techniques for improved results, along with most customized themes. A particular book theme can be incorporated into the reading program, otherwise I use standard classics for grades attending. Likewise, “Take PRIDE!” Character education show is customized for grades attending.

Remember, students learn much more effectively through visual presentations, such as these. They really relate to the presentations’ fun, participatory format, thus ensuring the positive, educational messages are absorbed.

Through storytelling, visual aids, self-reflecting questions, audience participation and facilitated discussion techniques, “Become Your Captain. Catch Your Future” redirects students’ attention from the negative influences and outside social pressures to focus on who they are and what they really want to do with their life.

Jackie Fischer – Artist – Ceramics, Sculpture & Pottery

I’ll start each workshop with a slide show of my personal journey into the arts. This will start from my entrance into the arts back in high school where I was guided away from the arts by guidance counselors and administration. I’ve found this to be helpful to mention as many students can relate to this.

My entrance into the arts started in ceramics and has led me to Mould Making, Metal Casting, and Fiber. I’ll discuss how perseverance, determination, hard work, and elbow grease has awarded me with scholarships, grants, shows, and teaching opportunities that enable me to travel to craft schools and residencies to continue making work. I’ll show the evolution of my work and include photos of in-process works from different studios throughout the years.

This introduction will last about 30 minutes concluding with 15 minutes of questions.

I’ll continue with about 20 minutes of demonstrations and disperse materials for hands-on building. At this point, I’ll make my rounds to meet with each student and troubleshoot their project ideas and the best way to construct them. I’ll call the class over to discuss which method of building would be best depending on the desired outcome as there is no one way to make something.
