Artist And Me Program Mark’s JCH




Exciting Music Sequence with Ilia this Tuesday


We had an awesome class in Music with introduction of various percussion instruments and drawing. At the end kids made abstract drawings. Ilia played the saxophone to their drawings and he even showed them how he made sounds that followed the lines they had made and it was slow and long as well as quick and hectic. It was really great, I am excited to share images with everyone. The pictures just don’t show it well enough!

Curriculum materials are coming soon.
