Parents and students: Just a reminder that we are taking Iowa Assessments through the week of February 3rd. Students are encouraged to get a good night’s sleep, eat a good breakfast, bring in a snack or water bottle, and come with your game face on as you accept the challenge to show improvement from last year’s scores to this year’s scores.

Come to The Maquoketa Art Experience for an opportunity to meet and create your own song!
Topics covered will be the ABC’s of song structure. How is a song put together? What’s a hook? What comes first, the lyrics or the music? And related topics. Each participant will begin a song lyric with or without music. I will guide you through the song start process. Bottom line: let’s have some fun! Cost: Donation Only. This workshop is intended for ages 13 through 25 year olds. Contact the Maquoketa Art experience to register for this class: www.maquoketa-art.org or call: 563-652-9925.
