Integrated Arts II: Circus Dreams
Ever wanted to run away and join the circus? Probably…and most kids would love to do that, too. Here’s your chance. In this course, we’ll explore the theme of “Circus” as a fun vehicle that can bring together diverse areas of study and one that we can encourage children’s self-expression and self-confidence. We’ll push back the desks and delve into circus skills, puppetry (from giant to tiny), clowning, movement, storytelling, painting, prop construction, etc. as we create a circus performance and consider ways of integrating a variety of arts and crafts with a variety of curriculum disciplines. A flea circus, too? No fleas please…well maybe!!!
