Shapes & Movement - Sitka AK - 2015

Shapes and Movement - Sitka, AK - 2015

Through a two-week residency at Baranof Elementary School, Sarah worked with 180 Kindergarten and 1st grade students to develop kinesthetic skills.  Students learned how to make geometric shapes with their bodies, and expanded their movement vocabularies to include elements of gesture, rhythm, and motion/stillness.  Students connected movement skills and marine ecology studies through the creation of 'Marine Tableaus'. 

This project was sponsored by the Alaska State Council on the Arts, Sitka Fine Arts Camp, and Sitka School District through the Artists in Schools program.
