!, Spook Handy The Songs of Peter Paul and Mary History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
There's a great picture of the Beatles back stage at the Ed Sullivan show in 1964 staring in awe at Peter Paul and Mary. The Beatles knew they were in the company of incredible and important musicians. This trio did more to make American folk music accessible to the masses than anyone else. People all over the world sang along to "Puff the Magic Dragon," "Leaving on a Jet Plane" and "Blowin in the Wind." And audience members can't help but sing along with Spook as he leads them through this heart-opening, educational, and voice-raising program! (Occasionally, Spook is joined by Paul Prestopino who toured with PPM for 15 years as a back up musician.) An excellent program for Libraries, Arts Centers, Churches, Schools and other meeting places.

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!
$501- $1000

The cast of characters include a handicapped little girl named Bree who comes to the rescue; her father is the put-out-of-business-by-rats cheese maker, Monsieur Roquefort; CooCoo Roacha is the Jiminy Cricket-style roach who is also the Piper’s manager.
