Prospera Artful Programs

 

Programs generously supported by:

Prospera Credit Union

 

Prospera Credit Union is committed to providing young people with the opportunity to access arts education in the communities they live in. Our partnership supports two Arts Umbrella programs that provide young families and children facing geographical, cultural or financial barriers with access to the highest quality arts programming free of charge or at a reduced rate. Together we aim to provide a healthy and creative outlet for individuals that allow them to express their creativity in a safe and supportive environment.

Children get access to high-quality supplies such as bright temperas or bold pen and ink. This class runs on a drop-in basis with a $2 fee, and students take home their creations.

Prospera Artful Afternoons

Visual Arts

Ages 13-19
Develop your skills and techniques in a student-driven class that is open to teens at all ability levels. You develop technical skills, personal forms of expression, critical thinking and conceptual awareness through drawing, painting and mixed media. This class is highly personalized and will be informed by the interests and creative approach of the students enrolled. Inspiration will be found within the students themselves as well as through exposure to modern and contemporary artists and works of art.  There may also be 1-2 field trips scheduled during the school year (at no cost to families).

Other Classes

Thanks to support from Prospera, Arts Umbrella also delivers hundreds more hours of Artful Afternoon classes throughout the year. These Acting and Visual Arts classes for young people ages 6-8 and 9-12 are delivered using the same highly personalized model, with registration organized through the Surrey School District.

Acting

Ages 13-19
Discover your acting abilities through scene interpretation, gestural language and script work as you focus on improvisation, characterization and scene study. This class helps develop rehearsal skills with the goal of an in-house production. You will learn how to make physical character choices that are within the context of a story, and how to commit emotionally to your character. In this class, you develop critiquing skills, informing and enhancing your own work, and the work of the group. These classes may also branch into on-camera work, depending on the interests of the students registered for the year.
