Students from Angoon presented their original play “Raven Stole the Sun” Thursday in an all-school project led by Gustavus artist Sarah Campen through the Artists in the Schools program. Junior high and high school students wrote the script after studying traditional versions of the story, and elementary school students created backdrops and props.
The Artists in Schools program is supported by the State of Alaska and the National Endowment for the Arts with additional funding from the Rasmuson Foundation. The residencies are designed to provide “high quality arts experiences and training for students, teachers, and the greater community,” according to the Alaska State Council on the Arts.
