As you may have known already, the winter trimester has started and for the Fine & Performing Arts at Eastside Prep that means the start of a lot of new classes and activities.
Some of the new classes that have rotated in include: Playing Shakespeare (Middle School), Directing (Upper School), Digital Filmmaking (Middle School), Digital Reality (Upper School), & Graphic Design (Upper School). A fresh batch of students have rotated into the Choir and Stagecraft classes plus a few have joined in with the many Instrumental Music Ensemble students who typically play music for the entire year.
The Upper School Play, The Memorandum by Vaclav Havel, has been cast and students are rehearsing daily while the Stagecraft classes are already working diligently to set the stage for the show.
This will be a trimester full of creative process, experiential learning and many amazing creations! Keep an eye on this blog and be sure to set aside time to come visit the campus to see one of the performances scheduled or exhibits of students work.
Upper School Play – Feb. 3rd through the 6th
Winter Music Concert – Feb. 24th
Directing Projects – Feb. 26th
