Lake Myra Cultural Arts Programs 2013-14

Sponsored by the PTA and from a grant from the
Wake County United Arts Council

October 28-Nov 1, 2013
Thank you ---LENI NEWELL

Back by Popular Demand….  
Students collaborated with Newell to create large, vibrant, impressive banners that will be permanently installed in our cafeteria. These bright, colorful hangings bring a child-centered, creative and arts friendly atmosphere to our school. Using vibrant fabric dyes, students enjoyed learning silk painting techniques to complete these wonderful banners.  The theme of this legacy gift Otters at Lake Myra. This residency is a great way to encourage a community spirit at our school, as the artist encourages all school staff and parents to participate!

Gran’daddy Junebug  
Friday, November 15 at 9:30 a.m.

Continuing his family tradition of preserving culture, “Gran’daddy Junebug” teaches personal responsibility, finding the right path, coping with peer pressure, being true to self, always striving for excellence and respect for self and others through the African oral tradition of “call and response.” This highly energetic program utilizes a tremendous amount of audience participation (as he shares his wisdom) which has students learning life lessons as they experience the time of their young lives. One principal wrote, “I’ve been in education for 35 years and this is the BEST cultural arts program I ever witnessed in my entire career”!
            What folks are saying…
            "…this past Thursday morning, as I sat front row-center, with that same little girl in arm...I was proud to share the time with her in your presence...your message rocked her world...and mine.  I often say that BEING an artist helps me be a better human...EXPERIENCING your mastery of art certainly stirred the "better human" in me! Thank you, sir for being and doing." Check out his website at
