The Public Speaking Workshop teaching our students to learn by doing.  We teach techniques, but  we emphasize application.  Our public speaking workshop teaches:  vocal variety, articulation, voice projection, techniques to overcome anxiety, organization skills and critical thinking skills.

 

Public Speaking 2 & 3

Prerequisite for this class is Introduction to Public Speaking Workshop.  In Public Speaking 2 & 3 workshops students continue with more advanced training and learn more advanced forms of speech.  This course allows kids to develop competitive strategies to strengthen their debating skills.  Techniques taught will not only improve their speaking but will grow their communication and analytical skills as well.

 

Visual Arts 

Our techniques remove the fear of failure that can block creative expression. We offer a safe classroom environment where mistakes are not an issue, they are an opportunity. Students are encouraged to challenge themselves to new levels. Our techniques and support help remove obstacles to creativity so that students can experience their own potential. Once this happens students can finally unleash and tap into their inner creativity. Students succeed in creating art work beyond their imagination--- in their very first class. This success allows their confidence to soar. Many educators and parents find the attitude of success, instead of fear of failure, spills over into their school work and home life.
