Video+Story: Creative Kids, El Paso Pro-Musica working together via Art and Music

During this time of Social Distancing and Stay at Home Schooling, two groups dedicated to the expansion of art and music in the Borderland, have come together with a virtual Music and an Art Lesson for the Boys and Girls Clubs of El Paso.

On Wednesday, officials with El Paso Pro-Musica announced their collaboration with Creative Kids of El Paso, where Visual Art is the connector for Youth in our community.

Creative Kids works tirelessly with disadvantaged youth, children battling cancer, children with disabilities plus provide weekend classes, whereby the Canvas becomes an incredible form of Expression.

Their virtual Art Classes for the Boys and Girls Clubs of El Paso this week is accompanied by “Dance of the Blessed Spirits,” featuring Artistic Director Zuill Bailey and UTEP Graduate Student Chris Beroes-Haigis.

Officials with El Paso Pro-Musica share that they are proud to provide music to inspire the young artists.

“We are forging exciting relationships in the community to insure that young people are exposed to the arts. We applaud Creative Kids for their video lessons during these difficult times of learning, and hope to continue our new joint collaboration into the future,” said Zuill Bailey, Artistic Director of El Paso Pro-Musica.

The first collaboration is “Matisse’s Muse,” with Stephen Ingle offering the valuable art and history lesson.  For more opportunities for music to soothe and heal, go to El Paso Pro-Musica’s website.
