RAP & Rhythm Workshops with Srvent

As part of Arts Alive Festival, kids are invited to join Edson’s own Spencer Richard (aka Srvent), who is an independent producer and rap artist, professional filmmaker, and occasional author, for a fun workshop exploring performance art, poetry, and what it means to be an independent artist today.

We are offering two classes – one for kids ages 6-12 (April 11) and another for teens ages 13-18 (April 13).  Cost will be $10 per person.  Snacks will be provided.  Each workshop will take place at the Galloway Station Museum from 3:45-5:30 PM.

We ask each participant to bring a poem (or rap) they have written for workshop purposes. It doesn’t have to rhyme.
