Teaching Artist to Visit Schools

Teaching artist Priscilla Howe is in residency on Monday and Tuesday, January 14 -15 in Salina schools through the Arts Infusion Program of Salina Arts & Humanities.

The residency includes a community performance of “Tristan & Iseult” at Ad Astra Books & Coffee House, 141 N. Santa Fe, Sunday, January 13, at 3:00 pm. This event is free and open to the public.

Storyteller and puppeteer Priscilla Howe has traveled the world, captivating audiences of all ages. In her upcoming Salina performance, Howe will tell the story of “Tristan & Iseult,” an epic tale of good luck, bad choices, giants, dragons, fools, betrayal and of course, romance. This story is best suited for adults and children ages nine and up.

In addition, Howe will bring her popular storytelling to local schools, working primarily with students in grades K-5. A returning resident artist, Howe offers a highly dynamic program with curricular connections in language arts that allow students to explore creative self-expression.

A resident of Lawrence, Kansas, Howe has been telling stories in Salina for more than 20 years as a visiting teaching artist and a performer at the Smoky Hill River Festival.
