Arts in Education

Little hermit crabs coming out for a visit following the puppet story 'Hermit Crab Finds a House', fostering a memorable impression of the story that will live with the children long after the event has passed!

"The arts are not a frill. The arts are a response to our individuality and our nature, and help to shape our identity. What is there that can transcend deep difference and stubborn divisions? The arts. They have a wonderful universality. Art has the potential to unify. It can speak in many languages without a translator. The arts do not discriminate. The arts can lift us up."
Former Texas Congresswoman Barbara Jordan
