Final Lessons in Drinking Gourd Residency- Lesson 8

In this last session of the Follow the Drinking Gourd Music Map Murals residency students worked hard to add all the finishing touches to the mural and checked to make sure each section relates to a verse in the song lyrics. During the course of the residency, students also learned the Follow The Drinking Gourd song. The 8-part mural will be on exhibit at a special Drinking Gourd Festival on June 16, 2015. Nalle Stars Children's Chorus will also perform. The artwork will be on display through July 16, 2015 at the Francis A. Gregory Neighborhood Library in Washington, D.C.
