|PUSH Pins Workshop|
PUSH Pins uses illustrated children’s books, physical science, weather, animals, or the concept of community as a basis for learning.
This workshop, with artists Heather and Darren Stevenson, focuses on: OBSERVATION - studying a subject; IMITATION - re-creating a demonstrated concept; and IMAGINATION - igniting personal ideas for expression.
Improvisation and choreography are explored as children develop self-awareness and confidence with movement technique, group exercises, and a short student presentation.
Each program is grade specific and, if requested, specific curriculum needs can be addressed as part of this workshop.
