“I’m a rookie this year. I really enjoyed it, especially the improvisation [during development],” said Lockie McKinna, who served as a mentor in “A Stacked Deck.”
“When we come together to collaborate and design a show, we are making art that transcends ourselves and connects each person our story touches. That’s why I love ArtStream,” said Carolyn Ricks, who directed “Out of Monet.”
[Xandra] Martel said the shows build camaraderie and allow participants to enhance their skills and confidence. She composed a poem for the talk-back session, ending with the line: “There’s a place for each of us to have a full life.”
