What our students are learning this week…

In Miguel’s visual arts class, the students looked at figurative paintings and began to understand how colors and shapes can be used to create and communicate ideas.  The students applied this principle to their own paintings, drawing their ideas both from famous works and from their imaginations.

In Gardiner’s theater class, students learned the importance of vocal warm-ups.  Vocal warm-ups help an actor or actress release tension in the jaw, tongue, and face to help them speak loudly and clearly.  

In Patricia’s theater class, they are studying Little Shop of Horrors to understand different emotional states and how these can be portrayed.  The students listed the emotions they saw in various scenes from Little Shop of Horrors and then acted these behaviors out in different ways with a partner.

Got any great lesson ideas or fun activities?  Share them with us!
