“Can You See a Song” Kicks off September 19
This photo collage, created by photographer Mark Foster, shows the last kick off assembly for the students and faculty of the school.
The Educational Outreach committee of the board co-chaired by Bruce Buchanan and Robyn McMahon is excited to announce the kick-off of the 2014/2015 educational outreach program at the Winding Ridge School of Inquiry and the Performing Arts in Lawrence Township on Friday, September 19th at 9:30 a.m.
The concept created in 2012 by Executive Director Donnae Dole and her staff, combine the efforts of the Indianapolis Jazz Foundation’s music program and the wonderfully talented artists of the Hoosier Salon. The kick-off is an assembly for the 4 through 6th graders of the Winding Ridge School’s art program. Working with Principal Alicia Harris and art teacher Dawn Heffernan, the 4th, 5th and 6th graders will have the opportunity to participate during the months following the kick off to create their own works of art in the same manner that the professional artists do.
Hoosier Salon artists, Martha Sando, April Willy and Thom Himsel created works of art during the assembly while the musicians played. It is a wonderful blend of the creative processes, said Alicia Harris, allowing our students to truly think out of the box during their creative process.
