Our students are given the freedom to think for themselves, problem solve, and respect each other's ideas. They know that they cannot fail...ever.
The Empro Dragons would love to "Hot Dog" to the neighboring planet. Wait--the neighboring planet does not have a name yet--what will the planet be called?
Shy Create-A-Play student, Maya says meekly, "I don't know."
Instead of dismissing Maya, the Create-A-Play teacher turns the response into an idea: "That’s a great idea! So, 'Planet I Don't Know' it is!"
There is never a wrong answer at Create-A-Play! Maya's mother told us that she has seen a marked improvement in Maya's confidence and sociability due to her experience in the Kids Creative Create-A-Play program.
A finished product: The students have worked hard to make their ideas reality, designing sets from their own artwork, creating costumes and learning the music for their play. Improvisation, acting and performance skills are developed though games and exercises and are part of the collaborative creative process. The students perform the play on the last day of the program for their friends and family and take home a CD of their music.
While we believe the process to be extremely important we also value the benefit of a polished product that the students can be proud of. This is also an opportunity for families to experience and see what it is that we do!
Highly trained, experienced teachers and arts professionals provide the essential arts education that is now being drastically cut from school curricula. Our teaching staff are excellent role models and co-collaborators with the students.
