Eisemann Educates Online began a new series of children’s activities this week based on the book, “Dancing Hands: How Teresa Carreno Played the Piano for President Lincoln.” The videotaped lessons/activities, hosted by Eisemann Center staff, are posted at the Eisemann Center’s Facebook page and have included learning how to play a “paper” piano.

Upcoming activities (posted at 2 p.m. on the selected dates) include:

  • Tuesday, Sept. 8
    A read-along with the featured book
  • Thursday, Sept. 10
    “Acting Out Similes”

Eisemann Educates began in 2004 as an education and outreach component of the Eisemann Center and has given access to the performing arts to more than 11,000 children, youth and adults. Its online outreach, which began this summer, is celebrating the arts as well as cultural diversity. A new two-week series begins Sept. 19 based on the book, “Tito Puente: Mambo King.”
