If you had superpowers, how would you change the world? Join Youth in Arts Mentor Artists in an action-packed, multidisciplinary exploration using “Superheroes” themed arts activities to address Common Core Anchor Standards for Reading and Writing, along with California Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) standards. Creating and developing Superhero characters using different theater, dance and visual art techniques, you’ll discover new ways to incorporate multiple learning modalities through art, storytelling and expressive movement in the classroom.
Participants: Grade K-8 Teachers (Parents also welcome!)
Presenters: Miko Lee (theater) has directed and/or performed in professional theatre companies across the country and Suzanne Joyal (visual arts) is a specialist in printmaking and collage. All three presenters are also experienced educators who serve on the artistic staff of Youth in Arts, the largest and oldest arts education nonprofit in the North Bay, serving over 20,000 students annually. Youth in Arts also houses one of the only children’s art galleries in the country and the award-winning teen a cappella ensemble `Til Dawn.
