Imitation of Life: Fine Arts in Prevention Training

Students learn to use theater improvisation and other performing arts to significantly impact their peers or younger students with messages of empowerment regarding important social issues. The performance aspects are complemented with skill-building in the area of "processing" working with the audience to determine what messages they get, what those messages mean, and how the audience might use the information in the messages to a positive benefit.

Available Monday-Friday

Artist: Rob Simon

If you've never had Rob do this performance for your school - you should! He is absolutely wonderful in connecting with kids .... Rob is an amazing educator and artist!

M. Waters, Black Elementary, Wichita

All students were engaged and hang on every word Rob shared.

L. Bertog, 5th grade, Bostic Elementary, Wichita

Rob presented information on a topic where he modeled sequencing of his ideas logically, used appropriate facts and relevant, descriptive details to support the theme of his presentation. Our goal in having Rob at Anderson was to motivate our students to do their best on the State Assessments. Rob exceeded our goals. The students are still discussing the message he shared.

L. Simnitt, Principal, Anderson Elementary, Wichita

Our students definitely enjoyed Rob's lesson on drug awareness.
