Krewe of You Virtual Art Class Series
Tuesdays, January 12th – February 9th, 2021 | 4:30-5:30pm CT
Mardi Gras in New Orleans will look a little different this year. Our favorite walking, dancing, marching, and rolling parades will be missed, but the opportunity to make Mardi Gras magic lives on. Revelers near and far are invited to an interactive activity series exploring the music, movement, and art that brings Carnival to life.
Krewe of You participants will learn from New Orleans’ most acclaimed Carnival krewe members and culture bearers to create all the elements of their own krewe. The series was created for students (ages 7+), families, and educators – but open to all! Click here to register!
