NEW AT KAC

NEW AT KAC / PARTIES

New faces, new classes... Eddie Nino KAC welcomes drawing and painting instructor Eddie Nino to our Visual Arts staff. In his class, Drawing with Graphite-“The Foundational Tool”, Mr. Nino shares his love of graphite, a medium many of us have not used since we were children. The class, Drawing the Image: from Beginning to End, provides students with a highly structured approach to painting, guiding students on how to create color, value, and compositional studies, working up to a finished piece. Mr. Nino’s photo realistic style will provide a new avenue of study for KAC students. See page 26-27.

New faces, new classes... Spring Workshop Series Have you ever wanted to try your hand at a different medium or try a different form of dance but were reluctant to make a 10-12 week commitment? Our new Spring Workshop Series offers a variety of classes in four week blocks, perfect for discovering a new passion. Metalsmithing, African Dance, Batik and Fused Glass are some of the many topics being offered this spring. See pages 8-13.

Conner Ives We are thrilled to have Conner Ives, an aspiring Fashion Design-

er and former KAC student, teaching Fashion for kids this session. His passion for Fashion design, impressive resume of awards and honors and more importantly his incredible dress designs have earned him a place as the youngest instructor we have ever had on staff at KAC. Next fall Mr. Ives will be attending Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, the school that turned out fashion icons Stella McCartney and Alexander McQueen. See page 24-25 for his Fashion classes.

Plein Air Flowers Join me in what I call my ‘middle-age’ passion! Nothing com-

pares to painting in the middle of a beautiful, luxurious garden! Here is your opportunity to use those “impulse purchase” paint colors! We will be meeting, weather permitting, at different gardens throughout the Katonah area. Instruction will be at your own individual level, in the medium of your choice. See page 26-27.

STEAM=

(Science + Technology + Engineering + Math) + ART

Did you know that Nobel laureates in science are 17 times more likely than the average scientist to be a painter; 12 times as likely to be a poet; and four times as likely to be a musician? The benefits of integrating art into the fields of science and technology are indisputable. We are excited to be offering a variety of children’s classes this spring and summer which incorporate STEAM concepts. From Silly Scientists for Pre-schoolers, to Lego-Art-chitecture and Robotic Sculpture for older kids, our STEAM classes are sure to bring out the DaVinci in your child!

Dancers will continue to strengthen the body and core muscles through barre work, particularly the feet and ankles to prepare for more advanced work.

Instructors will provide individual attention to ensure that each student works safely at their ability level to develop musicality, strengh and grace.

DANCE AND CHOREOGRAPHY: Participants will explore the many facets of Theatre Dance, which ranges from Fosse style to classic Jazz with some Lyrical and Tap thrown in! A thorough warm-up stressing technique will start each class, progressing to isolations, stretches and across the floor. In Choreography class, students will then ‘put it all together’ into song and dance numbers while learning the Choreographer’s craft. VOICE / MUSIC: Here’s where students get the chance to ‘stretch their chords!’ Proper vocal technique will be taught to create dynamic sound while learning to sing in a healthy way, learning to support, focus and project the voice. Students will learn great show tunes featuring their strengths-while working on improvement! SCRIPT WRITINGWe’re ‘putting it all together’ in this course, as students use their characters and songs to develop a cohesive story and script, which they will then perform for invited guests...with a little creative writing thrown in! BACKSTAGE ARTS Unlike many performance-only based Summer programs, T3x and T3x Jr. will also give students the opportunty to learn about what goes on BEHIND the scenes. Students will design and construct their own sets, props and costumes and learn stage make-up techniques....making this summer camp truly a TOTAL THEATRE EXPERIENCE!
