Enrichment

All About Art (K-3)
Young artists explore a variety of mediums, learn about color and composition, and practice the methods of the masters with instruction from an accomplished artist and experienced art teacher.

Building Bakers (K-5)

Besides fun times with food, the children are exposed to concepts of volume, weight and measurements, textures and flavors, kitchen hygiene and safety, motor skills, team work and sharing.

Jr. Productions on Broadway
Students are trained in every aspect of staging a professional musical theatre production. While rehearsing for the staged show, students are encouraged to abandon their inhibitions as they learn voice, movement, acting technique, characterization, improv, mime and audition techniques. Students go through the audition process and everyone is cast in a role that stretches, challenges, and showcases their individual talents.
