The Hoots!

This week we talked about film editing and music as other forms of Art. This week we featured two local artists: film editor Julian Ramirez and the Sacramento band, The Hoots.

How are these two local artists connected? Well, Julian is the film editor for Hoot Headquarters! Hoot Headquarters is a children’s show centers around an owl puppet, named Oliver who lives in a treehouse. Today we drew our own version of Oliver’s treehouse!

We are so excited to bring some new and different art forms to our classes for our students to explore. We showed brief clips of Hoot Headquarters and played music by the Hoots during coloring!
