Toby Farms: End-of-year party

PictureThe Toby Farms students made our
Teaching Artists posters as a “thank you.”

After a full school year of afternoon arts activities, we bid a “Happy summer!” to our Toby Farms after-school students.

Hedgerow Fellows Brock and Joanna spent two afternoons after school every week bringing creativity and play to the students. Activities included acting, improvisation, and dance.

Check out our short video below capturing a practice of some of the cool dance moves Joanna taught!
