“Hands on With Zig is exactly the kind of education outreach that typifies the All Kinds of Art program. It is engaging, educational, and impactful to all participants --- including students with special needs. Zig is such an excellent ambassador for the All Kinds of Art program, because he truly connects with all kinds of audiences.”  Melanie Moore, Education Director Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation

Zig's Musical Journey with Cross-Curricular Connections  


Interactive Math by the Numbers - A Cultural Arts Approach


Rhythm of Respect, Responsibility, and Character - Anti-Bullying Message through Music Performance (October is Anti-Bullying Awareness Month)

“Zig went above and beyond what he was required to do with these students, who were not the easiest to handle. By the end of the week, not only had Zig involved the students and staff, but also parents  (most of who were not easy to involve in their child’s life) and community.” Cindy S. (administrator)

“Zig always goes over really well with students and teachers. Zig brings in a lot of math, and the teachers really go for that, it’s all in our curriculum. An artist who is able to apply what the teachers are doing in the class room, that’s just a win-win.”  Michael R. (educator)
