Artist Spotlight: We R 3C (Bart Dentino)

The Program Founder of We R 3C, Bart Dentino, has been a teaching artist and curriculum consultant for over 25 years. He is well known for his work as a professional songwriter and performer and has received numerous awards for his individual and combined efforts including the American Library Association’s Notable Children’s Recording for the original children’s album, I Wish I Was a Dinosaur. This esteemed award, given on a national level for children’s music and literature, is awarded to only ten artists annually. Throughout the years, Bart’s association with entertaining children and adults has led him to design creative teaching strategies for teachers to use in addressing problem academic areas. His work was featured on the popular educational PBS television show, “Homework Hotline” and Bart was showcased as “innovator in children’s music” on the PBS Video Magazine, “Out on a Whim.” He was designated as a “Friend of Education” by the Delta Kappa Gamma Honor Society of teachers who are recognized for their high standards and excellence in education. For the past four years, Bart has been working in the upper New York state area with a unique approach to behavioral education that has achieved much success and acclamation in schools and in other communities. Adults and young people alike have discovered how to allow long term, intrinsic motivation to contribute to their communities in positive, proactive ways through implementing the Beginnings curriculum and the We R 3C curriculum.
