For educators who wish to present workshops within an existing class day format, many of these workshops can be condensed to 30-45 minute repetitive time blocks designed to bridge age-appropriate concurrent subject matter from classwork with writing exercises for each group.
All of Andrew's workshops and programs can be combined into a more intensive Artist-in-Residency programs. A Residency can be tailored to meet the needs of a presenter's specific format, such as repeating the same set of workshops for different groups each day of the residency, or doing an intensive set of songwriting and performance workshops with one or more groups over 1 to 3 days.
We are happy to tailor Andrew's time with you to meet the unique needs and goals of your community - please email or call 540/338-3233 about specific program needs or additional information.
