JOIN PROFESSIONAL ARTISTS IN A FUN AND EXCITING COMMUNITY BASED ARTS PROGRAM AT RICHVIEW BRANCH
Open to older adults ages 60 and beyond as well as youth aged 9-12, this workshop offers an introduction into the enriching world of art and creativity. Working with professional dancers, musicians and theatre artists, participants will be guided through an inspiring creative journey to share your story.
Led by dance artist Yvonne Ng and her team of professional artists, participants will be led through fun, playful and gentle movement warm-ups, as an introduction to the creative process.
Movement and theatre arts will be explored through improvisation and gentle dance exercises, music, storytelling, writing and group discussion to build an original multidisciplinary piece inspired by your stories and life experiences.
In a friendly, informal environment, participants will work directly with dancers, musicians and theatre artists taking part in a collaborative art making process through creative play and the sharing of ideas. In this supportive atmosphere, every individual’s strengths are celebrated, all contributions are welcomed and all ideas valued.
