Performing Arts- Storytelling
Middletown author Gloria Smith Zawaski has written The Undercover Kids’ Holland Adventure series. The program she introduces to students, with its creative online interactive component and accompanying short story contest, makes this a perfect addition to school programs. Gloria and her characters (as puppets), Katie, Jake and their dog Cooper are available to visit schools. The title of her presentation is “How to open the door to your imagination.” Gloria’s 40-minute presentation is lively, giving the students the opportunity to think about what their Undercover Kids’ Adventure will be all about. The program has been developed for grades 4 through 6. And the books are available for sale at your school and the author will do a book signing. It works great because the program is based on the New York State curriculum guidelines. There is a 40-page Teacher Resource Guide available for download. It is great for cross curriculum programming. According to Gloria, “Children's lives are often too programmed. The Undercover Kids have a chance to lead authentic lives...learn from their own adventures...make their own decisions.”

Mahoney, Daniel Writing with Pictures Workshop Literature- Authors,
Performing Arts- Literary Artists,
Visual Arts- Drawing
In my program the students learn the nuts and bolts of picture book making, from what the jacket's job is to how and why I choose the illustrations for a particular manuscript I'm working on. I share with the children everything I utilize while creating a picture book : rough sketches, story board, dummy book, and final artwork that actually goes in the book, as well the art I created that didn't make it in. Then the students become the authors as I illustrate the story they conjour up in a round robin storytelling session. I sketch it all out on a large pad of paper, then the students get to keep my art to make up stories of their own!
