Drama Club: Holy Trinity Drama Club is for students in 5th through 8th grade. All students who audition get a part in the cast or chorus. Students may also join set on stage crew. Productions are full length and include hand-sewn costumes, a full set and props, blocking and choreography, and musical direction. Rehearsals begin in January and are held after school on Tuesdays and Fridays (then every day the last two weeks before the show). Past productions include Beauty and theBeast, Peter Pan, and Hairy Tale Rock.
After School Art will be held at the end of the school day on Wednesdays (K-1), Thursdays (2-3), and Fridays (4-5). Mrs. Joyce will be the instructor and will provide all the supplies. Projects will be an extension of what is done in art class, but at a slightly more advanced level. Since there are only 12 students per class, we will be able to explore mediums that are easier to work with in small groups. There will be a large emphasis on pottery and glazing techniques, as so many of the kids request to work with clay, and there is just never enough time at school! We will also explore batik (painting on fabric with hot wax), printmaking, and another fan-favorite “Sculpey” which is a colored polymer sculpting medium that can be baked in the oven. There will be a new project each week, and we will try to explore as many new things as we can! Hope you can join in on the fun!
