Exploring Visual Arts II | Ages 9-12

| Schurman Family Studio
This class explores the elements of art from a more technical, but still open-ended lens through flexible exercises in drawing, painting, collage, and sculpture. Activities will be supplemented by gallery tours, videos, and images that are relevant to the topics at hand. At the end of the course, students will create an artwork in the medium of their choosing using the skills they have learned throughout the class to inform their final work.

What are Relaxed Performances?


Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
