Garden Place Creates Paper Violin Orchestra

Last week, over 150 family members of Garden Place Academy helped 72 kindergartens each create a papier-mâché violin!  The paper violin orchestra helps young students learn to hold and bow the instrument before graduating to real violins at the end of February.
