Field, Barb Balloon Art! Performing Arts- Clowning,
Visual Arts- Other
BJ and Company will custom design the right program for your needs. We have worked extensively with children and families and performed hundreds of shows. BJ will encourage the participants to have fun while they use their own creative ideas to design unique balloon sculptures. She will show them how to prepare the balloons and a few different ways to twist them. Then they will need to think and plan ahead. This involves a little bit of painless, hands-on deliberating about dividing and fractions … how much balloon do I have left to twist how many legs??? Although some participants may want to learn how to make a standard balloon dog, BJ prefers to encourage them be creative on their own and see what they can design. We can also add on a brief BALLOON MAGIC SHOW or just perform the show with no hands-on twisting by the audience. THIS PROGRAM IS BEST SUITED FOR SECOND GRADE TO ADULTS. www.bjandcompany.com 607-432-0988

Crocker, Keith Rallying Up The Troops - Hollywood and the Films of World War II: History,
Media- Film,
Visual Arts- Other
Here is an excellent follow up program for those who booked the World War One As Seen Through Hollywood's Lens seminar. This program details the aim of Hollywood in its rally call to produce propaganda films that would persuade the American people to wholeheartedly join the war effort. By pulling together some of Hollywood's top talent (many of whom were already in active service via the armed forces), Hollywood proved to be vitally instrumental in drumming up the force needed to help the allies win the war. Hear the history of how all of this unfolded, and see clips from some of the most famous propaganda films produced in Tinsel Town including Casablanca (1942), Joan of Paris (1942), A Yank on the Burma Road (1942), as well as countless others. We even explore the use of loaded imagery in various other genres including musicals, horror, animation and more! Excellent program for the Memorial Day weekend and the months leading up to it.
