Select classrooms will be participating in Arts Umbrella during the week of January 27th. Specialized art lessons will be brought into A.R. Lord with a focus on nature, birds and habitats. It is a great way for students to explore visual and and performance art.
Arts Umbrella is "where young artists ages 2–22 cultivate their creativity in Dance, Theatre, and Art & Design. As a non-profit centre for arts education, we believe that art is powerful. Powerful enough to change kids’ lives in incredible ways. When young people connect with the arts, they gain self-confidence, develop self-discipline, and discover creative expression—qualities they carry with them for life."
A second session will be carried out for remaining classrooms later in March.
