Krewe of You Virtual Art Classes

January 19, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Krewe of You Virtual Art Classes
Mardi Gras in New Orleans will look a little different this year. Our favorite walking, dancing, marching, and rolling parades will be missed, but the opportunity to make Mardi Gras magic lives on. Revelers near and far are invited to an interactive event series exploring the music, movement, and art that brings Carnival to life.
Krewe of You participants will learn from New Orleans’ most acclaimed Carnival krewe members and culture bearers to create all the elements of their own krewe. The series was created for students (ages 7+), families, and educators – but open to all!

About Kevyn Miller / Wndrby: My name is Mr. Miller, but you can call me Wndrby because I believe everyone should be their own superhero. I’ve been teaching with KID smART for 3 years and I’ve been making music for as long as I can remember. At one point, I thought I should go into computer science, but I knew that if Music wasn’t a big enough part of my life that I wouldn’t be happy. I went on to study Music Education at LSU, where I fell in love with elementary music and dove headfirst into the world of singing, dancing, and playing to learn. Nothing makes me happier than finding new and exciting ways to engage students using the universal language of music and I can’t wait to make music together.
