Sponsored by Partners of the Americas, Kinugawa’s Biomusic workshop teaches skills for building relationships, sharing and dialogue through improvisation, singing, and of course, drums!

Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust:The Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust is back to share their Froebel Block and Pentomino workshop. American architect Frank Lloyd Wright credited Froebel blocks with inspiring his innovative Prairie style. The three-dimensional pentominos are a problem-solving toy as seen in Blue Balliett’s mystery novel The Wright 3. Both exercises teach creativity, dimension, and space! Observe, create, reflect, think, problem-solve and challenge your design skills. Three Pillars Fitness 1 pm Join Three Pillars for a capoeira workshop! This ancient Brazilian martial arts form uses music, rhythm and drums as a background for high-flying kicks, spins and movement.
