Renaissance Festival

The Theatre Arts and Art classes will be taking a field trip to the Texas Renaissance Festival.  The cost will be $16.  There are only 60 spots available.  The first 60 students to turn in their permission slip with payment will be given a spot. Please note that you must be passing and have exemplary behavior in all classes at the time of the field trip to attend.  We are also in need of 12 chaperones.  I sent home the permission slips on Monday, September 28, 2015.

Acting

We are having fun in class creating short skits.  The students are working on character, action, and setting.  They must collaborate together and use these elements in their scenes.  

Celebrity Letters

The students have been given this activity as homework.  This is for a grade.  If you would like me to mail the letter, please send 2 stamps.  I have attached an example to use.

Welcome to Theatre Arts!

I am looking forward to an exciting new school year in Theatre Arts!  
 
 

Costume Design

We have been working on costume design.  The students created their own original costume design.  The students also learned about the meanings of the different colors with their color costume packet.  The costume packet is due on Friday, May 15th.  The students are working right now in groups to make their own costumes out of tape, newspaper, and any other recyclable items they bring in.  We will have a fashion show on Monday in class.  

Shoebox Theaters

The next major project will be creating a shoebox theater.  Please send a shoebox for your child to use.  The students will be making a theater out of the shoeboxes.  If you have any extra shoeboxes please send them, we always have students that need them.
