Cereal Box Theatre (Ages 7-10)
ARI Learning by Carly Filewich Inclusive & Social!
Showcasing Theatre, Performance, Story writing, Character Development, and Creative Arts in this 4 week build your own recycled Cereal Box Theatre!
Together we will explore the theatre! We will use recycled cereal boxes to cut out, paint, decorate and staple together a theatre for our play. We will explore the idea of backdrops and what they do and how we can create different scenes. This class takes Public Speaking, Creative Writing, Theatre - both elements and improv, Project-Based Learning and rolls it into one offering that covers main curricular points in Elementary and Middle School English. This class is Dysgraphia and...
Your student will learn about story arc, characters (both main and supporting), theatre and settings and how they impact the story we are trying to tell. There is also a performance aspect which helps students struggling with Public Speaking. All of these topics are English/Language Arts Curricular Concepts for Grades 2-9.
Yvonne, B.Mus McGill University, is an interdisciplinary artist with a wide range of interests. After a minor concentration in Art History, I continue to be fascinated by the subject and exploration into how we have changed art over the centuries. This includes fashion! I like to upcycle old clothing, create collage and assemblage sculpture, create electronic music and I work a lot with recycled materials and papercrafts. As a homeschooling mom of an ND learner, I've developed project based learning opportunities that combine curricular expectations with specific interests. I am of Metis and European heritage and enjoy exploring history and current art trends in my culture as well. Learner Led project based learning is where we connect with learners and inspire them to continue in their learning journey.
Homework OfferedStudents might need to do work outside class to complete each week. Writing their plays can just be point form work or doodled notecards that allows for improvisation within a general framework.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments OfferedLearners will self-assess based on how they feel about their project.
You will need an empty cereal box, a pair of scissors, tape, glue, a stapler, paint or markers, coffee stir sticks or actual twigs or popsicle sticks, regular paper, card stock if you have it, and of course, your imagination.
Students will be using scissors and if you want to support the use of an art knife please make sure there is a pad on the workspace to avoid damaging the table top. The first class is a tricky one. Please be on hand to help your learner sort out the way we disassemble and reassemble the cereal box for our theatres.
