This is video from Y.A.W's (Young Artists Workshop) very first workshop entitled 'Make Your Own Junkyard Band.' The workshop was held at The Woods, a music venue in Portland, Oregon, on February 27th, 2010. We had ten kids between the ages of 9 and 12 participate. The kids made instruments out of recycled and found objects. The instruments were based on a 15th century instrument called the Stumpf or Devil's Fiddle, but everyone was encouraged to be as creative as they could. Once the instruments were made, the kids got together into groups, wrote songs with their instruments, and then performed them on the stage at The Woods for a small audience. It was an amazing and fun time! For more information about Y.A.W and our workshops please visit our tumblr site: youngartistsworkshop.tumblr.com/ or e-mail us at youngartistsworkshop@gmail.com.
