Fine Arts Multiversity

 

From July 20-24, 2015, Redemption Church is hosting our first ever 

FINE ARTS MULTIVERSITY

A Marvelous, Masterful, & Merry place for all ages to unleash creative genius.

Using the amazing Dr. Seuss as inspiration, all of the sessions take their lead from the colours, rhyme, language, visuals and characters from the stories and wonder of Seuss.  These sessions will each contribute to our Snippets of Seuss" extravaganza, which closes out the week of our multiversity. All are invited to present at the extravaganza, whether it be to the invited audience at the production or in the art gallery. 

Participants of all-ages can register for a half or full day of creative learning.  

  • 9am-12pm: Dance & Music

  • 1pm-4pm: Art & Drama  (Lunch supervision provided)

We will conclude our week with a celebratory performance.  

Music

Have you ever itched to try your hand at songwriting? Do you think you have a song within you just bursting to be heard?  Do you have an important message that needs to be spoken? Do you realize that putting a message to a melody is a powerful way for it to be remembered?

Would you like to be a part of something more powerful than a single voice singing alone? This session will have three parts: 1) the group sing 2) the lyrics of songwriting 3) the melody of songwriting. The goal of the week is to perform the original songs that the individuals/group have composed.

Dance

Movement of any kind is a joy, but in dance there is a particular kind of joy expressed. That is increased exponentially when able to be done with a group. In this session we will be looking at a kind of folkdance called hip hop and the stories it tells.

Art

In this session we will explore Seussian sculpture in the form of papier mache. Whether a mini-sculpture of personal size or a mammoth sculpture done by group effort and included in the sets for our production, there will be something for all creative zaniness. Painting and drawing techniques will also be included.

Theatre

Seuss walks off the page in this session as many of his well-loved books are brought to life in 3D stories with living characters. Be a part of the fun as Sam and Cat battle it out, as Fox and Knox get the audience involved, and some not-so-well-known characters are introduced to the land of the living.

Her passion for the arts runs deep and her ability to communicate that passion and pass on the learning is legendary.
