tiger dolphin by Anne Sawyer-AitchThis spring Anne will be performing and teaching color shadow puppet residencies at three Ramsey County Schools, thanks to an Arts Learning Grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council. In April, she’ll work at Parkview Elementary School in Roseville. Oakhill Montessori follows in May, and she finishes up with Harambee Elementary for the entire month of June. Each residency is kicked off by a performance of Nalah and the Pink Tiger, and culminates with student shows.

The Hennepin County Libraries will also be seeing a lot of Anne this spring. She will be touring the Nalah show in English and Spanish at various libraries and teaching ELL students at various schools how to make a Topsy Turvey Puppet.
