World Studies The entire Fine Arts Academy Curriculum is developed around world geography. The class studies a new place each month and reads books from that part of the world. Cultural dance, dramatic play stations, songs and writing activities are designed around the study of the lives of children in different parts of the world. While learning about the lives of children around the continents, our students develop close friendships with each other as they work together to develop their own tight knit community at the studio.

Music & Theatre We will learn songs and play a wide variety of instruments. Students will also be encouraged  to create their own songs and instruments as well. Students enjoy hearing a story each day and acting it out as a group as well as using personal characterization. Students create their own theatrical play and act it out at the end of the season.

Creative Writing & Drama Daily journal time is structured through the daily theme. Children free draw in their journals daily as they work toward writing and acting out their own stories for theatre. Children enjoy dramatic play as they act out stories and scenes from their favorite books.



Additional Classes Available at a discount:

creative-movementStudents will learn classical skills in tap, jazz, ballet, and yoga stretches. They will be trained by professional dancers with college degrees in their field. The STORYTIME DANCE curriculum will be used to extend their attention spans for a full hour of instructions each day. A wide variety of props will be incorporated to elicit the creative expression needed for developing choreography skills. Students will perform in the Spring Dance Recital.

 

Exploratory Visual Art 1:00-2:00 Tuesday & Thursday

Students will be given the opportunity to explore a wide variety of art media through open-ended art projects. Pastels, tempura paints, water colors, clay, dough, colored pencils, markers, glue, and more will be used to express each child’s ideas. Using open-ended lessons with a wide variety of art media, we seek to develop the creator rather than the imitator within each individual. Creative expression is always encouraged through a wide variety of artistic media. Students will have the opportunity to display their artwork in the Art Show.
