Visiting Artist Awesomeness!
Throughout the month of December, our 4th, 5th and 6th grade students are taught by some very special Artists in Residence. Thanks to a grant from the Delaware Institute for the Arts in Education, multiple artists came to FSMA. Students took part in weekly workshops with a local artist who combines percussion and movement. As a finale to our month long study, students worked alongside world traveled professionals Tony Vacca and Abdou Sarr, who shared their “World Rhythms” program with our children. Each session was high-energy with lots of participation and a focus on cultural diversity, and global and social awareness. Tony Vacca led the Percussion Workshop while Abdou Sarr taught the Senegalese Dance Group.
