Ukulele, tuner, and book supplied

The ukulele is one of the most accessible instruments to learn to play. In this weekly circle, students will learn how to tune the ukulele, strumming techniques and basic chords. Students will learn to play together, keep a steady beat, and the art of practicing. Students who already have ukulele skills are encouraged to participate, as well, to enjoy the camaraderie of playing with others and build on their skills. All ages elementary school - adults may participate.
LOLA Arts has 10 ukuleles that can be checked out for at home practice or bring your own.
Tuesdays 12 - 2 pm
Teacher: McCall Hocking
Students will explore 2D mediums, focusing primarily on painting and printmaking, with in-depth learning into techniques and processes, using creativity and art history to create projects while learning the foundations of art and principles of design.
Projects will be more continual, generally lasting two or three classes. Regular attendance is not mandatory, but highly recommended.
