Art at Work: Education Programs
September 2, 2018
Beginning next month, AMP is teaming up with CHAMPS, an after-school enrichment program for students in the Winchester Public Schools in grades 1–6. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, students in the CHAMPS program will come to AMP for three hours after school.
Tuesday’s program focuses on musical creativity, with AMP instructors teaching students to use instruments, found objects, Boomwhackers®, and body percussion to write songs together “STOMP” style. By the end of the session, all participants will have written and performed original songs—in groups, solos, or a combination of the two. On Thursdays, participants will use all types of art materials, including found and recycled objects, to create artistic masterpieces. From masks and puppets to painting and making toys, students will use their imagination to paint, sculpt, and draw their way around the creative rainbow.
