Saturday marked another action-packed ArtStarts on Saturdays workshop. Milton Randall dropped by to teach kids & parents about the language of drumming. Participants got a workout and practiced their counting skills as they banged on their individual drums.
They learned about the relationship between drumming and speech through techniques like the universal drum break, as well as some simple chants about everybody's favourite food: pizza! We ended off the day with silly bum-shaking competition. It was kids versus parents, and kids took home the prize. (It should be noted that only kids were allowed to judge...)
Thanks Milton for an awesome workshop! We look forward to our next Saturday workshop: March 27 will feature Indian Dance with Sudnya Mulye. Don't miss it!
Many thanks to the TELUS Vancouver Community Board and the Host a City Happening Program for their generous sponsorship of the ArtStarts on Saturdays series.
