Lucas will give a lunchtime presentation of his work at the workshop at noon today.“During his presentation Charlie Lucas will create wire designs as a way of illustrating how lines, shapes and wire can be used in art projects,” said Wiley White, Troy-Pike Cultural Arts Center development coordinator. “He will offer ideas on how these art elements may be used in the classroom.”The ArtBridges teacher workshop is in its fifth year, but this is the first year to bear the name Tony Scott ArtBridges Education Program. The benefits of the program are many, White said.“Teachers learn ways to incorporate art across the curriculum and students become more excited about learning,” she said. “As students have more successful learning experiences, the dropout rate decreases. So, this is a very worthwhile program for the entire community.”The workshop is produced in partnership with the Alabama Alliance for Arts Education and sponsored by the Alabama State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts, Lockheed Martin, the Daniel Foundation of Alabama, the Wells Fargo Foundation, the Caring Foundation of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama and Art-Time Studios.
