If you see this fellow walking around the Stonington Farmers Market this summer you might want to stop and congratulate him. His name is Joshua McCarey and he’s going to be part of our community. Here’s the skinny:

Opera House Arts (OHA) is pleased to welcome Joshua McCarey back to the area in his new position as OHA’s Education Associate beginning April 7. Joshua is a teaching artist and performer who has worked internationally, with a B.A. in Theatre Studies from Emerson College. As Education Associate, he will oversee OHA’s arts integrated teaching and learning partnership with the School Union 76 schools and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., working to further school improvement goals and student learning by bringing teaching artists and lessons to teachers and to every student in every classroom.

“I had the opportunity to observe Joshua work with students when he first volunteered with OHA,” says Robin Cust, a local jeweler and the 2014 Maine Functional Craft Fellow who is passing OHA’s Education Associate reins to McCarey. “After seeing the way he interacted with students, I immediately came back to the office and said, ‘He needs to work here.’”
