  • Amazing Animals / Denise Anderson

    Do you like animals? Do you like drawing and cartoons? Then this is the place for you! We're going to learn all about animals and make some simple, fun cartoons too! Every week we’ll learn all about a new animal - what they eat, what they look like as babies, where they live and what awesome qualities make them special. Then we’ll use Google Whiteboard to draw pictures of our animal friends on our computers (or mobile devices). Every week Miss Denise will take everyone’s drawings (and even some of your voices too) and turn them into a short group animation to share at the beginning of the next week. (They’ll also be posted to our Amazing Animals Drive too, in case you want to download them.) You can choose whether you want to tell a silly story about your animal, or if you want to show us a true, cool fact about them in animated form. No special skills are necessary, just access to our Google Meet and Whiteboard via a computer or mobile device. We will be opening the next session to K students - please note that this class involves reading aloud and using technology to draw independently.

  • Rock and Roll Movies / Michael Messer

    Kids will create, write, direct, and star in their own rock n roll movie! Everything from the story, characters, props, costumes, animations and original score will be created by the kids, with help and guidance from veteran rock n roll teacher Mike Messer (leader of the world famous rock band for kids “THE DIRTY SOCK FUNTIME BAND.") Along with the encouraged silliness there is a strong focus on teamwork and confidence empowerment.

The other goal of the class is for everyone in class to have as much fun as we possibly can!
