Art & Design Classes
Support your budding young sculptor in this introduction to clay. Caregivers and students work together to build, paint, and decorate 2D and 3D fired ceramic pieces.
Caregivers and students create 2D and 3D visual artworks together, exploring different mediums and processes such as pastel, marker, paint, and cardboard. Foundational elements of visual arts are introduced, including texture, shape, line, colour, and repetition.
Theatre, Music & Film Classes
Students will explore the voice and basic instruments, and are introduced to music terminology, tempo, rhythm, and scales. Using voice work and hand-held instruments such as drums and shakers, exercises encourage students to use their imagination, start to work with others, and build self-awareness. By Ages 4-6, students will be singing in rounds and are able to recognize the sound each instrument makes.
Through play and imagination, students are introduced to the “behind the scenes” world of theatre and the role of costumes, sets, props, and more. Using different stories as inspiration, students build pieces that help bring that world to life. Students learn elements of design thinking and problem solving, and the balance of safety and play in a building environment is emphasized.
Little ones develop imagination, creativity, and self-confidence through games and theatre exercises, planting the seed for future theatre classes. Students explore storytelling and using their body to convey a story, discovering ways of relating to self, one another, and the world around them.
Ages 1-2, 2-3
Caregivers and their little ones enjoy movement together, responding to various styles of music, tempos, and sequences based on stories. Locomotor movements such as walking, running, rolling, jumping, spinning, and marching are explored. Students become aware of other children in class, begin to socialize, and follow simple directions.
