Students Learn Theater Arts over the Summer:

Liz Stoeckel, a teaching artist with the Fresno Arts Council, works with students during Theater Summer School at Roosevelt School of the Arts. The four-week program was part of a new initiative, Fifth Grade on Broadway, made possible by a $100,000 donation from Francine and Murray Farber of Fresno.

Five teaching artists from the Fresno Arts Council and two Fresno Unified elementary teachers taught theater movement, visual arts, script writing and acting each day of the program.

Eighty students from second through fifth grade from five schools in the Roosevelt region participated. For video, go to
