Smart-Art Workshop was a Success

I presented a workshop entitled “Smart-Art,” which is about ways to use the Smart Board (or other interactive white board) for art instruction of special education students. I put special focus on teaching autistic students, as well as students that were confined to wheelchairs and/or couldn’t hold a pencil or brush.

Rock

Piano, updated

I found one more school piano. It was painted and sitting in the lobby of a school. An homage to shellfish?

Musical Instruments

Two excellent instruments in the computer lab: xylophone and autoharp (referred to by its manufacturer as a “chromaharp”)

Here is a view of the mallots (hammers?). Wrapped in yarn?!

And here is the label. It is made in France.

The autoharps is very cool too. From the outside, it looks like a I-don’t-know-what.

From the inside, it starts to look interesting….,

And when it is out of the case, it is best.

The documentation has instructions on how to tune the instrument, as well as a sampling of songs to learn and play.

Piano

Two random sightings in one day.

#1 Stuyvesant High School cafeteria

This sounded bad.

 

#2 Woodhull Street, Brooklyn

The one on the street sounded real nice.
