Lora Schmidt

Utah Division of Arts & Museums (UDAM) teaching artist.

Set sail on a joyful journey  through the remarkable world of storytelling with Lora Schmidt. For almost 24  years,  Lora  has  captured  the  imagination  and emotions of audiences of all ages in venues as di- verse as the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival, youth detention centers, the U of U Girls Transition Unit, the Kari Sue Hamilton School, and classrooms and libraries   across   the   state   sharing   stories   from around the world and close to the heart.
Storytelling workshops teach students public speak- ing and organizational skills along with encouraging active  listening.  The  Make-a-play  residencies,  in which students write and act out a play based on a folk tale, encourages cooperation, team work and poise in front of an audience. Both introduce your students to the universality of story and will enliven any classroom. Stories will set your students’ imagi- nations  soaring!  Lora  has  been  a  UDAM  teaching
artist since 2000.
