ARTS IN YOUNG HEARTS – a special residency program.
As a painter, songwriter and story teller one of Kevin’s passions is to create music to go along with original children’s art work. In this artist in residence program ( 1-5 days) Kevin creates songs about selected children’s works of art. Children really come to life when they see how their drawings can become musical adventures. It stimulates self expression and creativity.
Many of the modern painters such as Picasso and Dubuffet and many of the “Art Brut” movement studied children’s art work to rediscover their own innocence. This is an exciting program for all ages!

Puff The Magic Dragon, You Are You, Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, I Know An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly, When You Wish Upon A Star, This Land Is Your Land ,This Little Light Of Mine, That Bear Makes Me Crazy, Shining Time Station and many more.
