Smarten Up with Andrew Wyatt from Miike Snow

 

 

Making art is excellent, but creating a masterpiece with the help of a master artist is even better!  The goal of Smarten Up‘s Creative Learning Workshops is to plant the seed for creativity, inspiration, and curiosity.  We want children to walk away from each workshop experience with an object, image, sound, or movement that will expand their impression of the world around them.  Every moment is filled with unexpected possibilities, and we hope to help our students to discover them.

At our workshop on September 22nd, kids around the ages of 6-12 will have the opportunity to record a song with Andrew Wyatt from Miike Snow.  Upon registration, children will be asked to send a sentence or two about their favorite animal.  At the event, the kids will make their own musical instruments (think water bottle maraca, tin can xylophone, shoe box guitar), and hear how their written submissions have been turned into a song.  Then, Wyatt will direct and record the mini-musicians as they sing and play in order to mix a Smarten Up song from the event.  Kids will not only be able to take home their amazing instruments, but they will also get an MP3 to help them remember the workshop forever.
