Long-time ArtShop instructor Teri Burch will lead kids in drama fun in her Characters Acting Badly class! Teri's drama experience: "I taught elementary school for 34 years and that was a daily performance! I also worked with community theater in my 20's. At various times in my teaching career, I did storytelling workshops, and I have been with Artshop for a long time." Teri likes to teach the acting class because it is fun! She loves the kids' ideas and suggestions for the plays. They can each have a "bit" that makes them stand out and even the quietest kids can have a role. Teri's art philosophy? "There is art in everything and it doesn't have to be beautiful to be a work of art. A child's mudpie can be a masterpiece."
