Rico Lastrapes – Stomp it Out: Making Music with Your Feet!
A crash course Tap/Hoofing intensive designed to introduce a classic American art to a new age (this isn't your Granny's soft-shoe)! In this workshop we will discuss the history of Tap, rhythm and syncopation, basic Tap steps and "tricks", as well as learn a group dance and create our own original combo. Tap shoes are not needed!
Daemond Arrindell – Spoken Word
When most people think of poetry they think "old dead guys talking about nature." But this ain't your grandma's quiet and polite poetry. Poetry can be loud and raucus, can be about the challenges you're having with your family or how obsessed you are with Game of Thrones. In this workshop we will play with metaphor and imagery to explore how fun poetry can be and then take our writing on the journey to become powerful performances.
Britt Freda – Activist Art
In a fast two hours of drawing, curious participants will choose an endangered species or a cause, come up with a call to action/tag line and create a mini-campaign poster. Upon completion, with student permission, we will (anonymously-no student names or faces) post the ACTION WORKS to instagram #climatechange, #endangeredspecies, #studentactivists, #studentvoices, #vashoncenterforthearts, #vashonartistsinschools, #artactivism. Make your voice heard. Change the world through art.
