Class Experience

Students will develop arts skills, social skills and confidence as they invent and inhabit an "imaginary elsewhere"  and work together to put on a play.  Arts skills include using our bodies and faces to transform into a character, expressing original ideas through storytelling, designing, acting, singing and dancing. 
Students are encouraged to work on their set and costume design and construction outside of class hours, but the amount of time they spend depends on the level of detail they want to add to their creations.
Required:  Scissors, tape or glue, Supplies for drawing (markers, crayons or pencils).  
Two large paper grocery bags for making costumes.  Some large paper, pieces of cardboard or cardboard boxes to use for making sets.
Paper -- can be scrap paper or newspaper or whatever you have at home.  
Various objects that could be used as instruments such as empty boxes or can, cardboard rolls from paper towels, sticks or other objects it is safe to shake, bang or drum on.  
Optional: paint and paint brushes.

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
3 hours per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
