Artist in Residence

Artist in Residence: We wanted everyone to know how privileged we have been to have hosted Kathy and Leo Lara, Artists in Residency, from April 30th to May 4th.  During this week long residency, Kathy and Leo met with third through fifth grade classes to explore various musical influences from Latin America. The artists provided the space and opportunity for students to learn about different musical traditions, instruments, and methods.  Each day, Kathy and Leo shared learning through a variety of hands on activities and diverse musical experiences centered on historical, geographical and cultural traditions. The residency was taught exclusively in Spanish and because of Kathy and Leo’s extensive teaching experiences in immersion settings, each session was filled with rich language connections.  The residency was specifically designed to focus on grades four and five to provide a larger, more in depth cultural exploration.  Our hope is for our intermediate learners to cherish this...
