Additionally, in the world of Art/Theatre “Children’s Theatre/Design Workshop” (Ages 7+) is a unique experience that introduces children to a variety of performance mask arts from around the world (such as African and Native American mask storytelling/dance, Japanese Noh theatre, Ancient Greek theatre etc.). The class focuses on similarities and differences in all of these art forms to try and determine the unique nature of masks and how they change the way stories are told and performed on stage.
