2024 Hermitage STARs

“2024 Hermitage STARs,” Friday, July 12, 2pm: The incredible talents of Florida’s arts educators reach well beyond the boundaries of the classroom. The State Teaching Artist Residency (STAR) program, now in its fourteenth year, is designed to nourish and replenish the passionate artist within each of the remarkable teachers selected for the honor. This year, they represent multiple disciplines of visual art, theater, and music and come from across the state of Florida. Greg Burdick (theater, Polk County), Dealey Dansby (ceramics, Hillsborough County), Shaun Fergus (visual art, Columbia County), Kayleen Justuce (music, Leon County), and Vanessa Watkins (stained glass, Seminole County) will have two weeks to create new work, culminating in a sharing with the community on Friday, July 12 on the Hermitage campus. Family and student friendly program – all are welcome! Presented in partnership with FAAE, Boys & Girls Club of Sarasota & Desoto Counties, and the Englewood YMCA. Registration is required at HermitageArtistRetreat.org ($5/person registration fee). Hermitage Beach, 6660 Manasota Key Road, Englewood, FL 34223
