Kindergarten Children’s Art Studio

Sculpting clay is a fun and creative process and medium that will help your child understand spatial awareness and develop fine motor skills.

Action Potential DaVinci Club
Grades 1 to 4, Room 204
Science and art connect in ways you didn’t dream possible. From
microbiology and DNA extractions to colour theory and Cézanne’s Still Life paintings, every week we learn a new branch of science fused with a new style of art and take home a creative project based on the day’s topic.
This program is student-inquiry based, so each class curricular is co-created by it’s own students. Past projects include: learning about mummification and preservation by creating your own sarcophagus and mummy out of a hot dog. Extracting DNA out of a strawberry and making it into a necklace. Discovering how a petri dish can transform into an artist’s canvas.
Have your kid researcher enjoy science and art like never before!

Kids get to be Directors, DJs, and Choreographers while producing their own custom HipHop music-videos!

CLAPBOARD KIDS FILM WORKSHOPS
Grades 2 to 8, Room 203
Clapboard Kids is a hands-on filmmaking program that gives kids the opportunity to learn professional skills from an award-winning filmmaker who has worked with Disney Touchstone Films, Columbia Pictures, Alliance Atlantis Communications, the CBC and the National Film Board of Canada!
Students learn about both the technical and creative aspects of filmmaking as they are guided – from the creation of an original film idea – through to the planning, shooting and editing of their films. This gives students the opportunity to try out a variety of filmmaking roles and skills (i.e. writing, acting, directing, wardrobe, sound, cinematography, and editing). Filmmaking techniques, such as stop motion animation, claymation, basic special effects and live action will be explored, along with the iMovie film editing program. At the end of the session, students will receive a copy of their finished films to share with family and friends. Due to the collaborative nature of the workshops, each session of Clapboard Kids is truly unique!
Our goal at Clapboard Kids is to inspire and guide the next generation of digital storytellers and filmmakers!

JK/SK, Rookies Rooks, Room 106
Grades 1 to 6, Kool Kings, Room 104 and 109
All levels of chess players are welcome. Beginners will be gifted with the universal language of chess knowledge, while advanced players will be challenged and raised to new levels. While learning or expanding their chess knowledge, students also gain important values and life skills such as goal setting, creative analysis, resilience, respect for others, and responsibility for decisions.
These skills are gained through our approach to chess as a mental martial art, where choosing a move means: taking wise, calculated risks, dealing with unexpected and disappointing outcomes, reflecting critically on changing situations, looking deeper to find more viable options than may at first appear, valuing diverse abilities and skill sets, and realizing there are choices in every situation.
As this strong, respectful and resilient mindset is nourished, players will have a lot of fun with our experienced and engaging instructors, who will appeal to and elevate their natural abilities. Chess is an amazing activity for children of all ages, where focus and skills are gained with surprising speed.
Fee: $126/student. Financial assistance is available.
Please pick up students at North East door labeled number 5.
