2016 Visiting Artists Week

This March, our students (in grades 1-8) took part in three days of workshops with a group of 8 talented Visiting Artists. The workshops culminated in a wonderful assembly, in which the students performed or shared what they had learned.

From Visiting Artist Deborah Gordon (A Cappella Singing): "I haven't stopped telling people about my experiences, haven't stopped smiling, and haven't been able to get those songs out of my already song-filled noggin... The environment, the students, the helper ( Lee- so true to his title!), the other artists and kids, the silence, the sounds... It was nothing short of an honor to be involved and to have met you and observed your marvelous school."
