"Into the Arts: A Personal Journey" shares stories of adults in Jackson Hole who are discovering, rediscovering or furthering their artistic talents. In this vignette, we meet Debbie Schlinger who brings her "sassy self" to Amelia Terrapin's adult tap class at Dancers' Workshop. The mental and physical challenges along with the comaraderie are why Debbie shows up each week.
Jackson-based producers Jennifer Tennican and Rebecca Huntington (who also freelances for WPM) have created a series of short films focusing on adults who are returning to or exploring the arts for the first time. An exhibit of work created by the subjects of Into the Arts is on display at the Teton County Library through the end of September. Tennican and Huntington spoke with Wyoming Public Media's Micah Schweizer.
