GPSD teachers had a fantastic time at the Greenville Arts Council’s January 30th CEU workshop, facilitated by Teaching Artist Jerry Jenkins. They learned about West African drumming, storytelling, and culture, and even got to participate in a group drumming session and make their own instruments from scratch! Check out pictures from the workshop:
Jerry is a member of the Mississippi Arts Commission’s teaching artist roster, and he works with teachers as well as directly with students. He can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
