Artists in the Schools

Chris Sigurdson led mime and masks workshops with students in Grades K-8 for two weeks, February 28 to March 11, 2011. The residency culminated in two school assemblies where the students demonstrated many of the skills they learned.

Teacher quotes:
“I enjoyed seeing students who are usually quiet or less active participants involved in the activities. It allowed them to express themselves using a different medium.” – Wanda Works, kindergarten teacher.

“Some of my students really shone doing mime. It was wonderful to see their confidence blossom! Chris brought amazing masks to show the students. They loved them! – J. Brisbin, Grade 2/3 teacher
