Our public service non-profit, The Marley Project, focuses on equine awareness and education through film, literature and the arts. One of our ongoing K-12 arts integration projects is the story-telling and visual art collaboration series, The Marley Stories. Marley, Bruce's trusted equine partner, is not only his "go-to" horse for work with people, he is also quite a "character" himself, so he is the perfect fellow to play the leading role!
The first story in the series is "Finding AlphA," created by Bruce and Julianne and illustrated by Kimi Daly and the Fairfield Magnet School for Math and Science Honors Art Students in 2018. To see the video book with voice-overs performed by the artists themselves, click on the link below. Be sure to stay til the end to hear them describe the experience!
"It was amazing. Our students were able to understand the message and make the connection between what they learned with Mr. Anderson in the classroom regarding how to demonstrate self control, deal with pressure and teamwork and later to put the information into practice when they met Marley. Students were able to understand that the choices they make don't only affect them, but everything else around them. They are not only helping animals or others but helping themselves along the way too!"
