Art on a Saturday – March 24th – 9am-noon
The Griffin Art on a Saturday program is designed to give middle school students a taste of the Griffin arts program and an opportunity to work with our arts staff. We offer four Art on a Saturday events each year, usually two per semester, and we feature two members of our arts staff on each date so that participants can choose the topic in which they are most interested!
Our next session features our Music Director Akina Adderley, teaching Songwriting, and our Furniture Making teacher Megan Carney teaching Wooden Planters!
Songwriting: Whether you’re an experienced, intermediate, or beginner songwriter, this is the workshop for you! We’ll cover form, basic chord progressions, and lyrics (including poetic devices and other ways language can make your songs more compelling). No instrumental experience? No singing experience? No problem! All musical levels and abilities welcome. You will leave this workshop with an original song!
Wooden Planters: Spend a morning in the Griffin Industrial Arts Studio! Students will learn about wood connections, as well as the sanding and finishing process. Each student will leave with their own unique box and plant!
