A three day Mask Making and Drama training workshop for Teachers (particularly upper Keystage 2).
Wednesday 15 – Friday 17 November
09:30 – 15:30
Llanover Hall Art Centre,
During the three days you will be taken through an explorative creative process that uses exercises and tasks similar to those utilised by theatre professionals to design masks, create appropriate movement and characterisations to bring it to life.
Places on the course are free to book and the network will sponsor your attendance by supporting the cost of supply staff up to £180 per day.
The sessions will use text as the starting point to providing themes and imagery that are discovered and developed through a range of literacy based activities, games and drama exercises. Participants will be equipped to deliver these in their own classroom and to develop their application to a range of circumstances.
The aim of the art workshop will be for participants to create 3D masks using a selection of appropriate materials for use in the classroom and to learn techniques that can be taken into a range of different creative art projects. The creative making element on this course will provide a chance for teachers to develop their own art skills and giving them greater confidence to tackle arts projects in the classroom.
This course is part of the A2 connect arts & education network for Central South Wales’ Messy rooms programme of training and CPD for teachers and artists.
