Imagination Stage Presents: Dragons Love Tacos!  

Grades K-5 
Tues-Fri, April 19-22
9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
$200
Facilitator: Mara Stewart

For active, creative kids with big imaginations and a flair for the dramatic! Channel your inner dragon (or taco?) for this re-creation of the story by the same name. In this vacation week intensive, we’ll create an original show where your creative kids will be storytellers, actors, playwrights, and designers!  Mara uses active creative games to engage the group in the entire creative process of putting together our original play. This performance will be LIVE on Friday, April 22nd at 11:30. 

Create Your Community 

Grades K-5 
Tues-Fri, April 19-22
9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
$200

Artists are inspired by their communities and surroundings, and can show us a new way of looking at where we live and how we connect to the world. Throughout this week our artists will work on projects independently and collaboratively to design and depict the world around us and create some ingenious worlds from their imaginations! Each morning will be broken into sections: with a guest artist in the first hour to mentor the group through 2D and 3D one-day projects, outdoor snack and play, and then the last part of the day we will do a deep dive into creating a week-long, detailed and elaborate sculpture of a community of their unique design.

Afternoon Clay: Ice Cream Bowls

Grades 5+ 
Tuesday and Wednesday, April 19-20
1:00-3:00 PM
$125 (includes all supplies and firing fees)

Get ready for summer! Trust us, these are NOT your kindergarten pinch pots we’re making. We are building strong and big, with lots of creative touches and bright glaze colors so your bowl will hold LOTS of ice cream (or fruit salad, or pretzels…we’re not limiting you!) This project offers plenty of flexibility for individual artistic direction, and some new challenges as we look at shape and functionality.
 
Please note that all work will be fired and ready for pickup by May 2nd.

Afternoon Sculpture: Advanced Mixed Media

Grades 5+
Thursday and Friday, April 21-22

1:00-3:00 PM
$125 (includes all supplies)

We have been on a sculpture kick at FYACS and Alessia is really looking forward to two days with our older artists to see what they can do! By “advanced,” we mean older fingers than our K-4 friends and cutting, combining and reimagining materials in a way to create a more intricate finished piece. Imaginations lead the way for this one, and creative engineering of materials follows!
