“Once Upon a Time” is a program for 60 children, ages 6 to 13 that uses a myriad of art materials and performing art techniques to explore the power of creating and telling stories. The main focus is for children to experience empowerment and the development of the personal voice through storytelling practices.
For four weeks from January 1 to January 31, 2014. We will be working with 4 groups of 15 children each. Through 8 sessions of 2 hours a day, the children will use a range of art materials and their imagination to create murals, paintings, puppets, mask- making, sculptures, drawings, and theater sketches to explore many different possibilities for creating individual and collective stories. At the end of the 8 sessions, the children will experience the amazing opportunity of sharing their creative outcome with their families and the rest of the community. We will organize a two-day art installation opening and invite everyone!
Many communities often cite how children are the future, but rarely do we take time to really listen to their dreams and their genius. Having this culmination will get the kids excited and make them feel like the leaders that we need them to be. In our experience, few things are as precious as taking the time to celebrate life and the wisdom of our children as a whole community. It’s going to be an event full of reflection and joy that the artists and the audience will always remember.
