Turn Drumsticks into Art as Great Drummers Play
Sticking Up For Children hosts its third Music & Arts Day of 2013, Saturday December 7, between 2:00 and 4:00 p.m. at the ReNew Cultural Academy, 3128 Constance, between 8th and 9th Streets, one block off Magazine, in New Orleans.
Leading drummers of New Orleans will again play for this Music & Arts Day: Fanfan, Johnny Vidacovich, Alexey Marti, and Steve Campbell and Lindsey Rust.
New to this Music & Arts Day will be a half-hour instructional session between the drummers and children prior to the session of turning drumsticks into art-work with Sharpie paint-pens. Drumming will continue during the art-making session. This Music & Arts Day will conclude with a Drum Circle. Everyone there will be invited to take up a percussion instrument and play.
Sticking Up For Chidren was able to give funding to its four Beneficiaries after its Festiva de Drumsticks auction on October 15 at Case Borrega. The New Orleans Youth Sound Experience, the Kuumba Institute of the Ashe Cultural Arts Center, and the FEPE orphanage and school in Port-au-Prince, Haiti and the Youpi Youpi Fondamental School in Cayes Jacmel, Haiti received funds.
The third Music & Arts Days of 2013 will have a fifth Beneficiary, our host, the ReNEW Cultural Arts Academy, serving students from Kindergarten through 8th Grade. Administrators Damon and David Batiste have provided Sticking Up For Children with an ideal, open space for arts-creation and musical performance.
Entry to the third Music & Arts Day is through the 9th Street doors of the ReNEW Cultural Arts Academy.
