Dave Allyn came to Gordon last year as the twenty-third annual Britt Nelson Visiting Artist. COVID put some roadblocks in his path, but he's been determined to find a way to connect directly with every grade before he leaves.
In addition to the amazing videos he shared last spring (archived at www.gordonschool.org/visitingartist) he's been working in-person with students this year.
Today, he's been with Preschool, Young Kindergarten and Kindergarten classes, getting them started on their own versions of the ceramic cups that are one of his trademark pieces. He brought his DJ equipment, too, and Preschool's class ended with a dance party!
