Oregon Symphony Storytime

By Gaabriel Becket, 2024-01-18

As we're all trapped at home watching the ice sparkle, PDX Parent sent out a link to a lovely program by the Oregon Symphony, "Symphony Storytime."

There are four seasons of this program, each video episode, about 10-15 minutes long, features a reader of a children's picture book, with a musician on a different instrument accompanying them. The illustrations are displayed as the story moves through the book and we get introduced to instruments like the French horn, cello, flute, oboe, timpani, bassoon, viola, xylaphone, and many more. 

This is a great, restful and relaxing activity and I loved it. I found a book that was a favorite of my now-grown children, "Owl Babies," and sent them all the link for a bit of nostalgia.

Rumble Art Studios was invited to have a table at the Oregon Home Education Network's (OHEN) resource fair at Oaks Park in Sellwood.

OHEN hosts a "Not Back To School Day" for homeschooled students and their families, who enjoyed the rides and the park train, and had lunch outside under the oaks and the sunshine. The resource fair provides information and a chance for new and experienced homeschool families to find more options to broaden and enrich their children's educational experience.

We were lucky enough to be assigned a spot next to the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport, who brought an incredible crocheted anemone (among other things), and across from the Rice Rock Museum in Hillsboro, who brought a dinosaur egg and geodes (among other things) two of the very best science field trip destinations in the state! 

The Oregon National Guard came this year to volunteer to help vendors get themselves and their gear to the Dance Pavilion and generally help out, and were stationed at the gate coming in to the park to help people find where they needed or wanted to go. Super nice guys!

We also saw tables manned by Village Home Education Resource Center, the Portland Youth Philharmonic, Echo Theater Company, Alder Commons, and too many more to name. Lots of people came by our table, met wonderful people and had wonderful conversations about art and education, and we made tissue paper blossoms and traded them for doodles. 

This was a very fun event, we're glad we got to go and we hope to be back next year!

Welcome to the new Rumble Art Studio site!

By Gaabriel Becket, 2023-06-17


Welcome to the new Rumble Art Studio website. We are in the process of transitioning to the Jamroom platform and today is our launch day. Some important features will remain temporarily on our old Wix site but everything will be linked between the old site and this site while we are moving.

What will you find on the new site?

  • Our interviews with local, featured artists. Every season we will feature a new local artist both in our shop window and via an interview on the site. Check out our interview with Summer featured artist Mike Skrzynski here -  An Interview With Portland Artist - Mike Skrzynski
  • Links to book our various services - Summer Camps, Open Art Studios, Sip and Paint ( coming soon ), Private Parties etc
  • Details of products, promotions and special offers in our Art Supplies Store.

What will be added in the future?

Many things! We hope to have an active Forum page and dedicated groups for online discussion, networking or to meet and connect with new friends. As soon as we can, we'll have a calendar of upcoming workshops and events and a regular monthly newsletter to members of the site. This will include a summary of all current activity and coming features.

All this and more will be rolled out in the next few months so why not join and become a member of the Rumble Art Studio online community NOW?

We'd love to see you "here" and find out what you'd like to see here and at the studio!
