Alex Addy, son of legendary Ghanaian drummer Obo Addy, has been coming to our school for 5 years and takes a whole day to work with our students on drumming skills and techniques. He finishes off his visit with an AMAZING interactive drumming and Dance Performance. Secondly, our artist in residence was Paul Hoelscher from Baker City. He is a full-time art instructor and artist. Our students had several sessions of watercolor painting throughout the past 2 weeks. North Morrow Community Foundation funded both of these special projects.
