Cultivating Virtues: How Does Your Character Garden Grow?
This exciting, creative, and fun-filled theatre residency is a unique blend of performance art training and character building. Arts integration strategies are aligned with the performance standards of Common Core. Students focus on the elements of acting while learning about character development through the lens of theatre. Students learn from Cultivating Virtues: How Does Your Character Garden Grow? that virtues are the universal gifts of character that live in all of us!
Residencies range in price, from $2,000 and up, but we can use your available budget and ‘work backward’ to create a cost-effective residency for your school. We may be able to assist you in securing grant and funding opportunities.
Residencies are tailored to your needs but usually include:
• A kick-off assembly (performing arts only)
• A required orientation meeting and planning session
• A set of workshops for classes of up to 25 students each
• A student culminating or sharing event
• An evaluation meeting
"Even in very challenging situations, WombWork’s team collaborates and uses several positive behavior and character development strategies to foster a creative atmosphere with clear expectations. These attributes enable them to keep students engaged throughout the entire school day in a much needed artistic environment. WombWork consistently utilizes acting to emphasize the importance of literacy and mathematics and embeds those two primary curricular areas throughout their lessons. In giving students a well-rounded theater arts experience, WombWork often utilizes multi-media technology throughout their lessons which has noticeably enabled them to give students a high level of interest in theater arts. WombWork Productions is certainly enriching the lives of children and local communities in Baltimore City through all of the compassionate work that they provide through the perpetual usage of social identity & awareness and action through actual performance and teaching."
