nat_rose.GIF 2:00 PM Patricia Bulitt presents: My Grandmother's Plate Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

My Grandmother's Plate with Patricia Bulitt. Free. Material provided.

Nana Bulitt turned to the plate that hung on her kitchen wall and did something that day she had never done before!  She made the plate come alive with a story about Anna May and her red bicycle.  There is not little girl on the plate nor a red bicycle.  But there is a tree, a farmer, a house and a horse in the field, which all were  folded into the story.

IN the storytelling performance: 

AT the onset of the performance, children are engaged with a rhythmic activity with rhythmic sticks and all the audience sings with Patricia.
Wearing an original wearable art costume, embellished with a 1911 photograph of Nana, ribbons and live roses, this story envelopes the young and old into the world of the imagination.  Courage of Anna May and her bicycle is brought to life in this tale of How My Grandmother Found A Story in A Plate!
