Patterns and Rhythms in the Woods

Ages 7-10

Shelley Fritz

We will explore the woods, creek and marsh, using science to learn about repeating visual patterns in nature, and use them to inspire artistic creations. Because rhythms are auditory patterns, we will also explore rhythm by learning about and playing drums around the world. We will make our own percussion instruments, play rhythm games, and create rhythms inspired by nature. This is an exploration class, not a musical performance class.
