Last week in ArtWorks‘ Recording Arts Co-Op, we did a number of exciting things. All of the apprentices in the program got to attend the Cleveland Arts Prize! This was an honor for the apprentices because the Arts Prize is a very big event. “The Cleveland Arts Prize was awesome because it was such a unique experience,” says Paul Coulter. “We saw many different kinds of artists. It was really cool.”
The apprentices also got to take a tour of Playhouse Square! “We saw all of the theaters and stages. The building is really cool and it has a vintage style to it. I loved seeing all of the ceilings too, the art is amazing!” says Sarah Bailey. Everyone really enjoyed seeing the old theaters and the renovations that have been done.
After seeing Playhouse Square’s theaters, the apprentices got to sit in on a live radio recording where a Cleveland Indie band, The Lighthouse and the Whaler, performed. “Sitting in the live audience was really fun. Seeing the band perform was one of my favorite things we have done so far! They were really good live and the talk show was also entertaining. I hope to have more experiences like this! I loved it,” says Samantha Boggs.
Everyone is very excited for the experiences we have to look forward to during the rest of the summer, especially the Open House! See you on July 10 from 6-8 PM at Tri-C Metro Campus!
*Editor’s note: There are two Open Houses. CO-ops at the Halle Building have an Open House on July 2, from 6-8 PM. Co-ops at Tri-C have an Open House on July 10, from 6-8 PM.
