Spanish Lessons with EPIC
WEDNESDAYS, MAY 2, 2018–JUNE 13, 2018, 5:30 PM–6:30 PM
This class is co-taught by the program director, Abby, and by bilingual EPIC (Engaging People in Change) high school students. Over the course of seven weeks, we'll read stories aloud, play games, look at verb conjugations, learn how to spell and read, all while working in a fun atmosphere that prioritizes interpersonal connections and the meaning of the culture in the language. First come first served, space is limited.
EPIC is a group of high school students from Pine Plains, Webutuck, Millbrook, and Dover who meet weekly to learn skills and change the world.
Suggested donation is $75 for community members and $100 for those with institutional support; but please give whatever is feasible for you. 100% of donations go to supporting EPIC. Checks can be made out to Grace Church with the memo "Spanish Class," and mailed to EPIC c/o Grace Church, PO Box 366, Millbrook, NY 12545.
We like to meet students where they’re at. Our Wassaic x Webutuck collaboration places our Education Fellows right into art classes at Webutuck Public High School. There, they show their own work, talk about careers in the arts, and get students working on long-term collaborative projects including stop-motion animation, motivational (or, rather, subversive) poster design, and performance art.
But we’ll bring students to us, too: through our partnership with the North East Community Center’s Junior High Clubs initiative, students from Eugene Brooks Intermediary School have worked with art collective Whoop Dee Doo on our Haunted Mill and with our education fellow on mask-making for our Community Day parade. And with their Teen Team, we’ve put on a smattering of programs: from Teenacious Minds: Community Artworks — a student art show at the Maxon Mills — to a float-designing workshop in collaboration with the Northeast-Millerton Library.
We’re always looking for new partnerships, new programs: reach out to email@example.com with any ideas.
We love working with school groups — reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll put together a customized visit featuring hands-on projects and tours of the Maxon Mills, the Luther Barn, and our artist-in-residency studios.
Plenty of our events are open to teens: our monthly Open Studios, visiting artist lectures, summer festivals, and a whole lot more.
Art Scouts and Wassaic x Webutuck are made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program: a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts administered by Arts Mid-Hudson with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. Worm Creatures was funded by Berkshire Taconic Foundation’s The Webutuck Quest for Excellence Fund.
