Puppets in the City
I spent this past Monday at Northwestern High School here in Baltimore city where art teacher, Danielle Long, did a shadow puppet unit with her two classes. She had shown them the shadow puppet music video I worked on for Wye Oak, invited me to do my crankie for them on the day of their performances, and talk about my work. These kids were learning to work together and use their creativity. I saw so much potential in them. I watched Danielle guide them through the class, always gentle, always patient and thought about what a difference a good teacher can make.
