This spring’s Middle-School Arts Immersion, organized and produced by Sedona Arts Center’s School of the Arts, helps students express the ‘Qualities of Water
’ with writing, mural, dance, painting and collage projects. The Immersion is taking place April 29–May 1, 2014 at West Sedona Middle School
. The instructors are Nubia Owens (mural), Sandra Zahn (painting and collage), Kate Hawkes (writing) and Jarred Zwicky (dance).
The program is funded by the City of Sedona, Target, the Sedona Community Foundation and the Arizona Kids Tax Credit and organized by the Sedona Arts Center’s School of the Arts.
The Middle School Immersion reaches Big Park Community School as well this year, supplementing their Civil War studies, and invokes wet-plate photography and journaling. The instructors at Big Park are Brock Archer (photography) and Libby Caldwell (journaling).
