Welcome to Compass Arts

Color Club  Painting Playgroup with Kate Daley of Whistle Pig Studios
For children 15 months - 3 years old and a caregiver.

Now that spring is here, let's play with color! Each week we'll paint with a different material such as finger paint, watercolors or sand paint. We'll use our hands, spray bottles, brushes and other tools to learn about color recognition, color mixing and practice pre-writing skills. Each class begins with inspiration from the colorful world around us through song, movement and a story. Please bring smocks or wear clothes you don't mind getting messy.

Session Dates: Tuesdays, April 7 - May 5, 2015
drop-ins and prorates available - email Gina@CompassArts.org for info
Musical Chefs with Gina Samardge
Drop Off Class for 3-5 year-olds

This class is the perfect way to continue the musical growth your child began in Musical Stew and add in some theatrical elements, too! Singing, theater games, storytelling, creative movement and instrument playing instill music and theater concepts on a physical level. This Spring our material will include songs, rhymes and stories about farm animals, insects, bunnies, frogs, horses, and weather.

Dates: Wednesdays, April 15 - June 3, 2015, 3:45-4:30pm
drop-ins and prorates available - email Gina@CompassArts.org for info
Imagination Playhouse:Music and Theater Class for Children 5-8 years

This Session's Show: A Story, A Story
Once, all the stories in the world belonged to Nyame, the Sky God. He kept them in a box beside his throne. But Ananse, the Spider man, wanted them -- and caught three sly creatures to get  them. This story of how we got our own stories to tell is adapted from an African folktale.

Students will dramatize this story while learning some basic theater terminology and playing theater games. Students will also play drums and xylophones, and learn an African folk song to share as part of the performance.

Dates: Wednesdays, April 15 - June 17, 4:45-5:45pm
Performance: Wednesday, June 24th at 5pm
Built upon the idea that learning and creating are best accomplished through exploration, improvisation and play, Compass Arts seeks to expand the minds of children and adults and empower each individual through its interactive arts classes. Currently housed in the Howland Cultural Center in Beacon, NY and drawing from the talents of professionals in a variety of arts fields, Compass Arts continues to grow its offerings, enabling you to find YOUR direction.
