So many rock stars are amazing visual artists. A few weeks ago, The Westfield School, in Perry, Georgia, decided to do a program called "Explore". Explore is a program set aside for 40 minutes daily for a week to teach the students about random subjects. Teachers were encouraged to participate. We were challenged to choose interesting topics, that we were well versed in, to share with the kids. The topics included were cupcake making, grilling, juggling, photography, doodling, yoga, and others. I chose to do art and music.
So, why did I choose art and music? They are my favorite things. After going to Seattle, Washington, I became aware that Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain both had art talent. Seattle Trip Link I decided to look into other artists that also were talented in music and art. As I researched, there were many out there.
When challenged to find something to teach for the week of Explore, I attempted to intertwine music and art. In this way, I could share music and art to the middle and high school students. They were able to explore and make connections between these two highly creative areas.
On the fourth day, we were still cutting our stencils.
