Contemporary work

PORT TOWNSEND — About 75 sixth-graders and their teachers from Blue Heron Middle School will be under the instruction of contemporary artists in creative writing, theatrical movement, music and visual art this week.

A final presentation will be held at the Wheeler Theater, located in Fort Worden State Park, from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Friday.

Tales, Text & Theater, now in its 12th year, is a collaboration between Centrum, the Port Townsend School District, the Washington State Arts Commission and PT Artscape.

“What I love about watching the Blue Heron students as they go through this program is their level of enthusiasm and energy,” said Martha Worthley, Young Artist Project program manager.

“Out of a week of fun-filled activity, students develop a sense of their own possibilities and talents, and gain self-confidence.”

Beginning each day with a core subject, students get an in-depth concentration in a genre of their choice.

Then, they explore by learning about other art forms in their other three classes, seeing how the different arts interconnect.

Phone 360-385-3102, ext. 130, for more details.
