Allemande Left and Do-si-do: Missouri Folk Arts Turns Corners With Rural Schools
Metadata[+] Show full item record
The Missouri Folk Arts Program (MFAP) has produced educational projects for school children for several years, from traveling exhibitions to school performances. The most long-lasting project is “Tuesdays at the Capitol.” Since 1988, MFAP has partnered with the Department of Natural Resources' Missouri State Museum. Master and apprentice artists who participate in the Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Program (TAAP) perform and demonstrate at venues in and around the Capitol. In early May, emeritus Professor Howard W. Marshall taught a four-day school residency program about Missouri fiddling at two rural Shelby County R-IV elementary schools.
