SCAC Verified Teaching Artist
Tim Lowry was presented with a 2020 National Storytelling Network Oracle Award in recognition for his creativity, professional integrity, and artistic contributions enriching the storytelling culture of the Southeast for more than 20 years. He integrates the Performing Arts, English Language Arts, and Social Studies in performances that emphasize the spoken word and literacy. Education units run the gamut- from shadow puppetry incorporating Native American star stories and scientific facts about the constellations, to dramatic radio plays encompassing facts about World War II and showcasing student writing, to coaching sessions with high school drama students studying physical and vocal characterization techniques. When collaborating with classroom teachers Tim’s ultimate goal is to leave the teacher with a unit theme, lesson plans, and all necessary resources to duplicate the creative experience again and again independent of the artist/specialist.
