The theater program has been working on the celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. Each student has the opportunity to study the life of a Latino who has excelled worldwide in music, theater, painting, science, sports, activism, writing and dance. Through the visual arts, a picture was created by each student that recreated the life and work of these Latinos. In our new unit we will be working with the art of the theatrical mask. This type of theater encourages participants to achieve a body awareness through concentration, gestures, individual emotions and games. We will travel through the history of theater and create masks that represent characters that will tell stories using physical expression and music.
