Cultural Arts: Curtis Blues

The PTA’s Cultural Arts committee has been working to bring some exciting performances to the school.

Up-cycling: Turning Junk into Musical Instruments From Africa to America is an interactive assembly that challenges students to use recycled materials to make folk instruments. Using the STEM engineering design model as a guide, Curtis performs on a variety of instruments made of “up-cycled” materials. Students discuss responsible green practices and how to use discarded items to create musical instruments as people have done throughout history.

Thanks to the PTA’s Cultural Arts committee, Curtis Blues will be performing “Up-cycling: Turning Junk into Musical Instruments From Africa to America” at our school on Friday, January 17th.
