Musical Imagination Station @ Washington Conservatory of Music

Musical Imagination Station @ Washington Conservatory of Music |  |  |

The Washington Conservatory presents an online class designed as a shared experience for children ages three to six and a parent or caregiver. Creative music, movement, and drama are blended in a seamless, unique sequence of highly engaging experiences for the entire family. Each session begins with a musical greeting and a jazzy body warm-up, which is followed by an exploration of steady beat and rhythmic patterns through instrument playing. Mr. B Box is then opened up to reveal visuals that are used to take everyone on an exciting musical imaginative journey to different places such as the moon, the ocean, farm, jungle, a picnic, etc. After returning home from our imagination travel experience, all are invited to call their special stuffed animal friends. Together we sing, dance, and play with our friends. After reflecting on all of our experiences, a musical goodbye concludes the session. Elements of music such as steady beat, tempo, pitch (high/low), dynamics, and timbre are reinforced throughout each session through songs, chants, instrument playing, and creative movement. Students may enroll for one or both classes.

Art & Study Hall @ CREATE Arts Center @ CREATE Arts Center |  |  |

Art + Study Hall is a weekly daytime program designed to provide parents with a flexible and safe option for the days when their children are engaging in distance learning and parents must return to work.

Art + Study Hall will provide socially distanced space for up to 8 children (less than 50% capacity for the studio) to complete their daily school distance learning, monitored by a CREATE staff member and teaching artist. CREATE will provide daily art instruction as well, with the timing to be determined by the schedule of each child’s live online classes. A mid-day lunch period will include a break for indoor/outdoor recreation.

Throughout each day (with the exception of the art lesson), students will be expected to INDEPENDENTLY work on their daily school work via online lessons, packets, etc. Students will need to bring their own laptops or tablets and headphones (with built-in microphones if the student will be participating in a live interactive online class) from home. Staff members will be on hand to monitor the children and provide (very) minor assistance with their work (i.e. help sounding out an unfamiliar word, explain a basic math problem). Staff will NOT be teaching academic lessons.

*Onsite* Family Pottery Mini Session I @ CREATE Arts Center

*Onsite* Family Pottery Mini Session I @ CREATE Arts Center |  |  |

Spend some quality time as a family exploring the world of clay! Whether your clay creations are purely decorative or practical pieces, you’ll treasure the time you spend working both independently and as a family. Explore clay construction (pinch, coil, and slab — all hand building; no wheel), and various glaze finishes. Projects are fired in a kiln on our premises, and students will take home several finished pieces. Younger children will need their adult pottery partner to assist through part of the process, which is part of the fun you’ll have together!

Fee includes participation for 1 child and 1 adult. Class meets for 5 sessions. All materials and firing are included.
