Description: Kids can stop by the Sound Booth and create an "Audio Portrait" with teaching artists. Using Garageband software, kids will flex their skills in oral interpretation as they record tracks that include autobiographical information such as descriptions of their home and family, their favorite color, food, animal, or their happiest place. In addition, they'll have the opportunity to add music and sound effects to their unique Audio Portraits. This is a great workshop for the budding podcaster, radio journalist or storyteller.
