Speak Up!


In these Arts Integration classes, children will explore basic public speaking elements including: projection, articulation, inflection, memorization, interpersonal communication, active listening, eye contact, turn-taking, confidence, reading aloud, and characterization.  Classes are taught through the lens of different academic subjects and culminate with an informal sharing session.  Programs include poetry, improvisation, newscasting, and our “Cooking Live” series. Parents  may drop off or stay to participate in the class sessions.*  Fee includes supplies, and reading materials.    Tuition is due at the door and space is limited so please register early!  All classes are $5/participant
