I feel like this program helped me think about people in a whole new way.

Both students and teachers alike enjoyed our experience with Mirror Image. It was insightful to see the different reactions from various children who might identify with different characters in the play especially when they got to talk to the actors. I would say that it was spot on developmentally for their social struggles. It would be nice to have some discussion questions for after the presentation to continue the conversation with the kids. Thank you!.

Fun because I can express my feelings instead of being shy.

I thought the presentation was great! The skit was very relevant to what kids go through and they really enjoyed the acting. The breakout sessions were very engaging for the students as well. It was fun watching their excitement to be involved. I also really liked the diversity of the actors. We would love to have them back next year!

Change is hard but necessary, and it has to start from within.

Mirror Image Arts was an amazing workshop for our students! Everything was so well planned and timed. Starting with the group discussion and the interactive warm up got the kids engaged right away. The play was very well done, and the questioning of the characters and the group activity to identify with the characters was extremely useful and purposeful. Hearing the characters resolve their issues at the end brought closure to the workshop and helped the students see how things might play out in their own lives. This experience was valuable to each of our students and I am grateful that they had the opportunity to participate! Thank you to the facilitators for a job well done!
