Virtual K-12 School Assemblies
So many staff members and students complimented on Mark's presentation. Some even said that the virtual format for this was ideal and that he was PERFECT in the role of virtual teaching and interacting with the audience. Many kids are so proud of their work. One child comes to mind who praised himself for his work, which was so nice to hear since he tends to be shy and less confident. Mark is a talented artist who has the gift to share his talents with others.
Dunbarton Elementary School
Hello Fellow passionate supporters of the arts in schools!
I’m SO EXCITED to be able to offer you my LIVE school assemblies at a deeply discounted price–through the wonders of technology.
Like most educators on the planet, we have been working hard transitioning to 100% online LIVE Webcasting. We have been working with a team of EXCEPTIONAL EXPERTS to create an AFFORDABLE LIVE WEBCAST ASSEMBLY that feels like I’m RIGHT THERE in your students classrooms or homes!
We have figured it out! I can’t wait to VISIT your school in this wonderful new way!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
I teach your kids to Draw! Draw! Draw! just like always! But I’m in my studio and you’re where you are. The lesson is PERSONALIZED, LIVE, and INTERACTIVE! I answer parent and teacher QUESTIONS and talk with your students while I teach. I spotlight their drawings and encourage them to share genius ideas to embellish the drawings with the group. This LIVE interactive technology IS SO COOL!
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO WE NEED?
Students need an internet connected smart phone, tablet, or computer. A piece of paper, a pencil, a smile, and an excited sense of adventure for creative discovery!
WHAT WILL WE DRAW?
My LIVE webcast assemblies are FUN and PERSONAL. Your school will COLLABORATE WITH ME and CHOOSE its lessons from my list of ABSOLUTELY AWESOME ART INSPIRATIONS. Your students have the opportunity to pick where they want to travel with their imaginations! Perhaps they will want to have…
“Mr. Mark webcasting LIVE from his Antarctic Penguin Research Station!”
Or…”Mr. Mark LIVE webcasting from ‘The Land Of Dinosaurs!'”
“Mr. Mark webcasting LIVE from his Antarctic Or possibly…”Mr. Mark LIVE webcasting from the surface of the moon!” Research Station!”
WHERE ARE YOU? WHERE ARE THE STUDENTS?
I’m in Texas in my state of the ART hi-fun hi-tech studio. The students are in their homes or classrooms, whatever your current situation is.
HOW DO THE LOGISTICS WORK?
You and I schedule a COMPLIMENTARY 15 – 30 minute ZOOM LIVE preview session. I demonstrate exactly how I approach teaching, entertaining, and INSPIRING your students harnessing this fantastic technology! I am available Monday- Friday 1pm-2pm Central Time for these personal mini ZOOM previews. If you need an alternative time, I’ll make every effort to accommodate you. To schedule your personal mini ZOOM with me please email email@example.com
WHY TWO ASSEMBLIES?
One for lower grades, and one for upper grades. My LIVE WEBCASTS are tailored to be age appropriate to the skills and abilities of each age group.
DO THE CHILDREN NEED SUPPLIES?
Students and Teachers just need pencils, paper, and an internet connected laptop, smartphone, or computer.
WHY ART? WHY ART??!! “Studies show that students of the arts in all disciplines outperformed their non-arts peers on the SAT by 102 points in 2010.”
– The College Board, 2010, Group Profile Report
“Being able to transfer thoughts into three dimensional drawings develops critical thinking and visual communication skills.”
– Tim Decker, Former “Simpsons” & Disney Animator
“If they’re worried about their test scores and want a way to get them higher, they need to give kids more arts…”
– Tom Horne, Arizona State Superintendent
“Just look at the inventors of the iPhone and the developers of Google… Creative experiences are part of the daily work life of engineers, business managers, and other professionals… America’s children will need to be inventive and imaginative. The best way to foster that creativity is through arts education.”
– Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan
