A.R.I.S.E. Gordon Story Theatre (1st-2nd Grades)

A.R.I.S.E. Gordon: Am I Gordon Parks? is an Arts Partners program developed in 2015 with funding from the Ulrich Museum of Art.

In this uplifting residency by the A.R.I.S.E. Ensemble, students will experience a brief performance demo by two ensemble members followed by coaching with two ensemble members to guide student participation in the elements of storytelling, readers theater and choral music that comprise a complete performance. Students will learn about Gordon Parks and the challenges he faced, and know that the spirit of Gordon Parks -- the drive to overcome -- is in all of us. Two members of the A.R.I.S.E. Ensemble will present each workshop.
