Note:
"The book points us to the core of arts education where children need and want to be "challenged" to create. Poet and painter, Tina Rotenberg, Ph.D., directs Visual Arts/Language Arts, a program she founded in 1995, to bring this challenge into inner-city elementary schools. In "I Dare to Stop the Wind, " she narrates the evolution of VALA and focuses on training a rich array of VALA artists (including dancers, musicians, shadow theater performers, a yoga teacher, Capoeira martial artists, and painters), working in several schools in Richmond, California, to mine the possibilities for teaching poetry through diverse art forms"--Publishers website.
