That’s right! “Le Lab”, the Maker Space at Dorval Elementary will be helping the kids make homemade string instruments…
A call-out to the community to have some fun helping the kids!!!
The grade 1 to grade 3 kids (6 to 8-year-old makers) at Dorval Elementary will be making acoustic Canjos (Coffee Can Banjos) and then we’ll be hosting a local music celebrity to teach them how to play them.
WHO KNOWS, YOU MIGHT BE SEEING THIS AT YOUR KIDS SCHOOL TOO, IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE!
This is a Sustainable Art Project for us and we really need your help with some of the reclaimed materials.
For this project we are asking for donations of:
- Small Coffee Cans
- Broken guitars
- Guitar strings (used or new)
- Old broom handles
- Old wooden baseball bats
You can drop off your donations at Dorval Elementary (c/o Le Lab) @ 1750 Carson Ave, Dorval, Quebec H9S 1N3 (Or mail them in, if you so desire.)
Send me a message in the comments for more details… If you want the message to stay private, just let me know and I won’t publish it.
We have a deadline on this and need the materials by December 1st, if possible.
