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!

Goldin, Amy Performing Arts Careers Performing Arts- Other
This is an interactive presentation for high school students who have loved participating in the performing arts in high school, and who are considering majoring in performing arts studies in college or other arts training programs after high school. In this career-focused presentation, I offer case studies about some performers who have made lifelong careers in the arts, as well as those who have gone on to different career paths, some related, some unrelated to the arts. We look at the emotional, life-cycle and financial rewards and challenges of arts careers, and the transferable skills related to studying the arts throughout a lifetime. I provide a wealth of unbiased resources and information about a range of performing arts training programs, colleges and universities, and careers. It is possible to arrange a multi-day workshop during which I will work with students in small groups and/or individually on developing their college lists and selecting audition material.
