The Geography We is a story.It’s a story told by Caldera youth.It’s a story that comes to life with voices, imagination, and creativity.It’s a story of connection to Caldera, school, family, community, and each other.It’s a story expressed through artwork and the power of the creative process.
The sun is central to all living things on Earth. It is constant.We each move through life with a spark of sun inside us and our gathered light intensifies when we are together. Like the sun, we are dynamic and powerfully bright.Where is your brilliance? What is your energy source? How do you respond to flares and outages in your power? How do you shine?
Life is wild, and it is all around us.Among the animals, we learn to be tender, tough, and creative. Their beauty and diversity inspires us to great works of compassion and art. Wildlife helps us understand our unique position in the world–and to treasure nature everywhere it flourishes, even within ourselves.
The land is a great gift–and a great responsibility.It has always been our home and our most important resource. Our food, our water and our shelter all come from the earth. Its beauty inspires us–from its soaring, snow-capped mountains and deep blue lakes to its vast plains and rolling green hills. There are new mysteries to discover every day in the ground beneath our feet.
Students were introduced to fast-paced techniques for writing, recording and performing music. Students learned to play the drum set, guitar and keyboards and sing while developing musical concepts of time, tone, pitch and rhythm. Participants wrote their own songs, learned about the recording process and performed as a band, which led into choosing musical styles, instrumentation and lyrical content while rehearsing and performing. All students were given a CD of their recorded songs to take home with them.
Students: Captain Smurf, Foxx, Pooky, Blaze, Dreads, Eddie, Pink Panthre, Malibu, Lil Panda, Mike N Ike.
