Family Arts Academy: Be a Sound Engineer!

Sunday, April 22

Art Community Kids & Families Parkway District

Art is a science and science is an art. Explore the intersection of these two disciplines through an interactive activity where sound waves of different frequencies produce visual patterns when shown on a Chlandi Plate. Predict the visual patterns that will accompany the sounds and create your own mandala pattern artwork inspired by what you've observed in this fascinating and fun program. 

Teaching Artists: Kara Rutledge & Adam Durant
