COVID-19 GUIDELINES

We are excited to be able to offer After School Arts Programming once again! We plan to follow all local, state, and federal regulations and guidelines in all of our partner facilities in the safest way possible as that information becomes available and/or changes. The following precautions will be taken to ensure the safety of all students and staff.

  • If you’ve been notified by the Department of Health of exposure to COVID-19, do not participate in Foundry classes until 14 days after your exposure.
  • If you or anyone in your household are showing symptoms of Fever, Cough, or Shortness of Breath, please refrain from attending any Foundry classes until fever-free for 72 hours.
  • Staff will take temperatures of all students at the front door with an infrared, non-contact thermometer. Anyone (staff or students) with a temperature > 99.8º will not be permitted to enter.
  • Students and Staff will be required to wear a face mask. Students without a mask will not be allowed in the building. Face shields may be worn in Hip Hop Class only.  Face shields and masks will not be provided by the Foundry.

CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

ACTING
Students use role-playing and basic creative drama exercises to bring scenes and stories to life. Working on self- expression, acting exercises, improvisation and using our imagination we will help the kids create characters and scenes.  The class focuses on a wide range of creative activities involving speech, creative movement and theatre games to help the ever growing mind of the creative kid! A great opportunity to make new friends while developing self-confidence!

PAINTING & DRAWING

Students will learn the elements of art foundations through various projects focused in color, shape, line, shape, form, and texture.

COMIC & CARTOON DRAWING

Students will bring their illustrations and imaginations to life by learning various  techniques in comic drawing and work on illustrating a comic strip. They will focus on facial expressions, story ideas, backgrounds, and how to perfect their own personal style.

HIP HOP DANCE

This exciting and energetic dance is a blast! Come dance along to upbeat music while memorizing fun choregraphed routines. We will take time each class to keep our bodies in shape by warming up with some stretching and light exercise. We will then transition into learning and practicing dance steps together in a relaxed and supportive environment.
