Fine Arts Series
Classes in art, music and drama will be offered this year on Sunday evenings. As a church who places value on every part of God's creative world, we want to encourage our children's interest in all areas of life. We take joy in the opportunity to have professionals in these areas teaching children how to humbly receive God's gifts of creativity and steward them well in His world. Classes meet every other Sunday evening (for a total of 6 classes) from 5:30-6:30. Session 1 begins August 27 and runs through November 5 with a performance on November 12. Because these classes have performances that will depend on students being present, you must pre-register and commit to attending each of the 6 classes barring illness or major emergency.
Fine Arts Session 1 (Fall 2017)
Kindergarten – 2nd graders: Musical Skills
This six-week class will involve learning the basics of music theory and singing. The students will learn how to play basic songs on a keyboard and sing psalms while playing fun games and doing various activities. This class will help children gain an appreciation for music and how important music is in worship. It will culminate with a performance at the annual Thanksgiving dinner on November 12. Space is limited in this class, so advance registration is necessary. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive more information, and we will follow up with you by email so that you can sign up for the class.
3rd – 5th graders: Chimes
In Fine Arts 1: Chimes, 3rd through 5th graders will learn to ring handchimes! Handchimes are musical instruments which are rung by hand the way that handbells are. Learning to play is fun and easy. In the chimes choir, the students will learn basic handchime techniques, how to read simple rhythms and notes, how to play together as a group, how to follow a conductor, and much more! The class will culminate in a presentation to the congregation at our annual Thanksgiving Dinner on November 12th. Space is limited in this class, so advance registration is necessary.
