Nall, Christine Face Painting by CHRISTINE Other,
Performing Arts- Other,
Visual Arts- Painting
I have been building children's imaginations through face painting for 12-years now, in both Texas - where I am originally from and New York City - where I currently live. I believe a child's most creative years are when they are young and if we build on their imagination we help them continue to be creative throughout their lives. So their imagination will be open to exploring this grand world around them in a creative way. In many ways they are more creative than I am, and I am always amazed at the ideas they come up with for me to transform them for a few hours. As an artist, art teacher and a professional face painter I do my best to encourage their imaginations to run wild! My talents are not limited to only children's parties, as I have also been hired for adult events and Masquerade balls. I received my BFA - Bachelor's in Fine Art from the University of Texas in Austin. Examples of where face painting is a wonderful addition to a planned event : children's birthday parties, work / company parties, school events, openings, promotions, holiday parties, Halloween, Purim, Mardi Gras, and many more! www.christinenall.com

Goldstein, Dana Enough for All: Native Americans and the First Shared Thanksgiving History,
Multicultural- Native American,
Performing Arts- Theater
This original musical recounts the year leading up to the first recorded Thanksgiving in 1621, a time when Pilgrims and Wampanoag Native Americans worked together. Without help from the Native Americans, the colonists would never have survived. Enough for All is told from the perspective of both colonists and Wampanoag villagers, who eventually put aside their differences and learn to trust each other as human beings. When they sit down together to give thanks, they are beginning the tradition that we celebrate today. Though we know that this hopeful beginning is short-lived, at least for this moment, there is enough for all. Students are encouraged to learn from the past, especially from these moments of peace between cultures. This inspiring production is geared toward grades K-6 and is available in November.
