Do Jump!

Gave two performances at Dorothy Fox Elementary on Feb. 2, 2009, funded by the Camas Educational Foundation, and sponsored by the Fox PTA.

History of this program since 2008

Recent residencies:

* Alan Adams, spring 2008, gave a storytelling workshop combined with a clay mask-making activity. Each student created a character and a mask to represent that conception. The children then were able to keep the masks and bring them home for display.

* Michael Allen Harrison, spring 2008, the professional composer and pianist from Portland spent a week with the kids, creating original songs for each class. Harrison recorded a CD of the music, with the kids providing the vocals, and performed a school-wide concert to show off the accomplishment.

We would like to document the history of this program as far back as we can. But we need your help. If you know about any of the artists-in-residence activities prior to 2008, please send that information (and pictures, if you have them) to:
