For Immediate Release

Title Berwick Head Start Students Working With Dushore Artist Dan Curry

Children at the Berwick Head Start program had the pleasure of working with local artist Dan Curry while he shared his knowledge and enthusiasm in an artist residency sponsored by the Northern Tier Partnership for Arts in Education.

Through Mr. Curry’s classes the children are exploring the various medias in visual arts; such as drawing, painting, pottery and sculpture.  The artist hopes to encourage and strengthen manual dexterity, visual thinking and problem solving through entertaining hands-on experiences.  Curry states, “Through painting, pottery, collage and drawing children can learn to observe and explore nature, shapes and colors.  The last two classes were devoted to the Musical Mural project the Curry has utilized in several of his residencies. Avideo accompanies for viewing. 

The many artworks created by the children were prepared for exhibit on the last day of school during a celebration with the parents, teachers and children. 

The Northern Tier Partnership for Arts in Education strives to provide intensive on-going arts
experiences that affirm the creative potential of each person, enhance technical knowledge and
ability, inspire creativity, stimulate the expression of personal vision, and applaud excellence.   The Northern Tier Partnership is one of many regional service providers selected by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts to work in partnership with the state in designing and creating initiatives to make a significant impact on arts in education programs across the state.  The NTPAIE is facilitated by the Bradford County Regional Arts Council and serves Bradford, Columbia, Lycoming, Montour, Sullivan, Tioga, and Wyoming Counties.

The Pennsylvania Council on the Arts is a state agency under the Governor’s Office. Its mission is to foster the excellence, diversity and vitality of the arts in Pennsylvania, and to broaden the availability and appreciation of those arts throughout the state. In 2004, the agency was named among government’s top 50 “Best and Brightest” in the Innovations in American Government Awards, a national competition recognizing superior and unique programming initiatives within the public sector.
