We had an exciting creative week and want to share the highlights with you!
During Simon's "Music is Life" program we discussed Spring Festivals around the world that celebrate freedom.
We looked at images of:
Holi a “Festival of Love” in India
The Cherry Blossom Festival in Japan
Nowruz in Iran
Songkran in Thailand
Passover, a Jewish Holiday
We also discussed what spring time feels like to us (see below).
In Monica's class, we learned about portraiture. She also had special musical guests - Lindsay on guitar and our artist Robin Dann on piano with vocals so that members could create to live music!
Here's a portrait that one of our members created.
Steve played the piano while Yvonne danced from Native Earth Performing Arts to the live music. Yvonne encouraged everyone to dance along to the many musical genres that Steve played.
Steve showed a Planet Earth segment of a Bird of Paradise dancing and singing as a way to attract a mate. You can watch that here.
We also talked about how music makes us feel.
In Jennifer's class we discussed the topic of play. We agreed that adults can play and shared some of the benefits!
