Fall 2008-2009 Artist In Residence
Our third Artist in Residence Program this year was incredible! Thank you to all the staff, parents, and community members that worked to make this program possible. Our artist this year was Keith Johnson. Has traveled to many countries in West Africa and learned from some of the finest African artist and drummers. He presented an opening performance at 2:00 on August 1 to the entire school. He then taught separate workshops and lessons to each class in every grade at Hancock throughout the month of August, with a focus on the 6th grade. The final performance on August 28, 2008 featured Keith and his group Kafa San, including a 12-foot stilt dancer!
