Help Wanted: Your Creative Ideas

That’s right, you. Yes—YOU! This request extends to residents and visitors, natives and newbies, adults and young people, those who practice all the arts, and those who appreciate them. And to all who read Create Tucker. When it comes to promoting and encouraging the artistic efforts of our young people, your ideas are not just welcomed, but needed.

Can you help us create STArt 2011 and beyond?

Last year, in the STArt Project’s second year, a group of Community Advisors formed to chart a course for STArt to benefit Tucker County youth in arts education. The Advisors (currently about 25 in number) are meeting this Saturday, March 12, to discuss current and future programs as well as means of support. The Advisors are the voice of the Tucker community, and would like to hear from you. Several weeks ago a blog responder challenged us to do more for our Tucker County students, and sent along some web links for ideas from other communities (Heartwood in the Hills) and for sources of financial assistance (WV Division of Culture and History). What thoughts can you add? What help can you give?

In particular, the Community Advisors could use your assistance in preparations for the Student Art Show on May 1 in the Davis Community Center. Here’s how you can help by responding through this blog:

  • Pass on your thoughts on local needs in arts education to the Community Advisors.
  • Let us know if you would like to join the Advisors; it’s a growing group.
  • Tell us if you can help with set-up, publicity, ticket sales, food, etc.
  • Can you help us to enlist Tucker County businesses to display student art during the month of May?

Most of all, come to the Student Art Show on May 1 at 2:30 in the Davis Community Center to see what Tucker County students of all grades have created. Show them your support with your interest and your presence.

Here are scenes from previous shows.
