Something out of Nothing!

Mentor Artist Eliot Fintushel worked with second graders at San Ramon Elementary School to explore and expand the very depths of their imaginations. Following are just a few of the wonderful theater games introduced to the students by Eliot in his six weeks of workshops with them.

And now it’s a tail!

In the game of GA!, as I kneel to even my head with everybody else’s, we go around faster and faster, nearly turning to pudding.

Just like that, the broom, once a hat, has become a sword.

Now the broom has become a hat of high fashion.
In this game of Prop Rounds, the broom has become a horse.

Circle story--each says a sentence, and all unfolds.

This was Eliot’s seventh year with the second graders at San Ramon.
