MESO-AMERICAN CLAY INSTRUMENTS clay workshop with Ernesto Hernandez-Olmos
Please note, this event has expired.
With Ernesto Hernandez-Olmos, learn how to make ceramic ocarinas, whistles and flutes with your own hands. Learn how your interconnection with the instrument can be expressed through your own music. Terracotta clay provided. Adult classes.
These ancient instruments are still played in ceremonies and celebrations in different native communities around the world. Myths and legends will be shared during class to appreciate the meaning that these instruments had to our Indigenous ancestors.
Ancient instruments and replicas will be displayed and played.
Ancient legends of music from Toltec, Aztec, Zapotec and Mayan cultures will be shared.
Our instrument making will help us understand the importance of music as we connect our spiritual and physical energy. As the day progresses, your creativity will be stimulated and your hands will shape instruments.
Bring your favorite clay tools and your lunch. Visit our website to register and for more about our artist: www.marinartteachers.weebly.com
