How is everyone doing this fine summer! Although it’s been a little hot for my liking outside lately, we’ve been going lots of fun places. We’ve been making sure that we always bring water, fans, and sunscreen, because, again- it’s hot! Last week, we went to the International Peace Gardens for the first time this season, and it was so lovely! We always love checking out all the gardens there, seeing the pretty flowers, sculptures, and animals (we really enjoyed watching the squirrels this time). A lot of the gardens that people wanted their pictures taken in were Asian countries’ gardens, so here’s some pictures from our tour through Asia!
We also went to the Utah Arts Festival last week, and it was tons of fun! We were sadly too busy enjoying the festival to take any pictures of us festival-ing, but trust us- fun was had! And several of our individuals managed to get their hands on some free merch, so everyone was excited about that- free stuff!
Today I actually had some free time to wander around taking some pictures during classes to give you all a glimpse into a typical Monday at TURN 🙂 In Cesar’s drawing class today, they were doing an interesting project where they drew out some backgrounds, then had cutout images of various subjects and placed them onto the background drawings to come up with some crazy/fun scenarios.
In our percussion class each week, most people use it as an opportunity to be loud! Everyone usually starts out with their favorite percussive instrument, but then there are a few opportunities throughout the class to switch it up and grab a different instrument.
