About Story & Drama Explorer classes
Come join our magical suitcase and the little puppet child! Themes, shapes, colours, patterns and textures are used as stimuli for the classes, brought to life through inspiration from visual theatre, multi-cultural folklore and everyday human experiences.
The class begins and ends with a colour inspired story from the suitcase, and themed and interactive visual play forms much of the class time. After the opening story, the puppet child leads everyone off to a playscape of workstations that combine art with drama play. We encourage a parent/carer to investigate alongside their child, letting them experiment and discover their own possibilities. The emphasis is on playfulness and having fun, trying something quirky and new. At the end of the class after some clean up time, the puppet child draws together the discoveries through a little end to our story, back home to pack up their suitcase.
STORY EXPLORER classes are building on the success of the earlier little art classes, teeny tiny little art for babies and and little art playground for toddlers and kids, which ran 2014- 2016.
The classes are BRAND NEW for April 2017. They are a collaboration between little art Founder Harriet Poole, and little art parent & Visual Theatre maker Seonaid Goody.
