The Americana Project is an innovative music education program with broad community outreach. It is a collaboration between Sisters Folk Festival, Creative Educational Resources and the Sisters School District.
The program was established to inspire young people to learn the age-old craft of guitar- and ukulele-building, and to build handmade instruments over the course of two trimesters. Skills gained in the program help prepare students for higher education and careers after high school.
Projects funded by the Studio to School grant infuse the arts into learning experiences for all students, grades K-8, and help develop a culture of music and art enrichment and integration in the Sisters School District.
