Thank you!

What a Weekend!

The Imagination Fort Worth Staff and Planning Committee want to thank the teachers, students and artists who attended the 25th anniversary celebration of creativity and collaboration! We had such a wonderful time meeting and visiting with you all.

Peter Cook

Peter held us in suspense during his performances wondering what he would do next. I know the students enjoyed his workshops. The IFW staff and committee extend a special thanks to him for his performance on Saturday night at the McKinney church which was unforgettable for all who saw it. In addition we thank him for his generous donation of 10% of his DVD sales back to Imagination FW Weekend for the Deaf.

Matt Daigle

We all enjoyed seeing Matt again and drawing cartoons while he led the class in his witty art. We also want to thank Matt for donating his artwork to Imagination FW to be raffled off during the weekend. Our winner was DiAnne Allison, who donated it back to the Imagination Fort Worth offices to be displayed there.

Amber Galloway-Gallego

I heard many comments about how much the students loved Amber. Using balloons so students could feel the vibrations, she went on to compare her technique of translating songs in ASL versus the use of Signed English. Here she is presenting her ASL version of the song, "I Will Survive."

Invisible Hands Dance Troupe

We all enjoyed getting to move again---it's nice to get up off our feet and express ourselves to a beat, right? I saw lots of smiles in the workshops with Fred and his troupe.

Kent Kennedy

Kent was showing students how to best use hand shapes to tell stories. How many ways could you use the "g" hand shape, for example? Students were thinking of how to take those ordinary hand shapes and turn them into something extraordinary.

Kelli Williams-Mirus

Kelli worked with students on a string-art project. She let each one choose a shape to use as a template for a design, then begin their art. Working through the class, they came up with some unique cards that were beautifully done.

Mondo Drummers

Thanks to the Mondo Drummers for bringing their talents to the weekend once more. The students enjoyed feeling the beats and dancing to the music of the drumming and non-stop rhythm. Who said deaf people can't dance? Not us!

Sean Moore

Chemical Reactions--science and art together-- who knew? Science and art have been co-mingling since the dawn of time, actually, and we had a chance to experience it with Mr. Moore's workshop.

Janet Morrow

Ms. Morrow was here again this year packing her glue guns! The students made their choice of arthropods with all kinds of metal objects. They all took their time as they thought of how they were going to create their own scuttling creature, and the creations were stunning.

National Theatre for the Deaf

We were privileged to host the National Theatre of the Deaf this year, and boy did they make their presence known! I know I loved seeing them! Their workshops were full of teamwork and creativity.
