The beat goes on
Student-made drums and photos of students drumming are in the windows of Fashions Anew, 183 S. Oak Park Ave., through April 30. Longfellow School second graders in Scott Naber's class designed and produced the drums as part of Art Start, the Oak Park Education Foundation's visiting artists program. Musician Atiba Jali visited the class to teach African drumming, percussion and songs. The kids created the drums with art teacher Jenny Raia so they could continue practicing what they had learned. Fashions Anew has exhibited Art Start student artwork every spring for the past five years.
