7th grade - Community Mural
7th graders create, design, and paint a community mural that stays “forever” on the walls of Global Arts Plus Upper Campus. Students learn to collaborate their design ideas under the artistic process and aesthetics led by past muralists like Melodee Strong, Patrick Cunningham, and Bayou.
8th Grade - Indonesian residency
Students will be able to experience the process of learning about Indonesian culture through gamelan and culturally specific dances. Led by Joko and Tri Sutrisno, 8th graders will be able to count the rhythm of traditional Indonesian music, comparing and contrasting the learning process between Indonesian and American cultures, and understand how a geography of one’s country shapes their identities.
Please Note: We hope that COVID will not impact any plans to bring us together for residencies and performances/presentations, but we will keep families updated should we need to adjust plans for safety.
