Brought to you by Creative Arts Workshop and Neighborhood Music School PACK program (Parents and Community for Kids): where families make music, art and dance together.

Join us for an afternoon of family “ART” sound events starting with a festive drumming event featuring Master African Drummer and Choreographer Aly Tatchol.

Then on to making beautiful mobile wind chimes. Have fun and use your imagination choosing colors, shapes and textures to make a gentle sounding-hanging instrument that will flutter in the wind.
