Artist: Arianna Ross
During this storytelling residency, students play with instruments and touch artifacts from small villages all around the world and learn to tell a traditional folk tale as a collaborative team or as an individual. Arianna specializes in folk tales from India, Indonesia, Brazil, Egypt, Ireland, and Russia. Through the art of play, students can deepen their understanding of story sequencing; increase their language development; expand their knowledge of other cultures, and improve their ability to work as a team. Students develop their own performance incorporating two or three folk tales that they have learned.
