This short course in artistic performance aims to engage students in artistic practices with others, by offering a structure that can be used to facilitate collaborative and individual imaginative and creative initiatives, leading to a group performance.
How will Artistic Performance [SC] be useful to me?
An arts education fosters the development of skills that are specific to arts activities, and transferable skills that may apply to other activities.
Through movement, sound, symbol and image, the arts can transform people’s creative ideas into expressive works that are communicated to an audience.
This course is hands-on - you will be fully engaged in practical group activities. The course is structured around three strands:
Experiencing the arts - designed to give you actual experiences of the arts, so that you can begin to talk about and evaluate artistic performances. You will gain an insight into what the art form is communicating, how it is communicated, and to consider your potential role in the final group performance.
Planning and preparing - You will move on to plan and prepare for the performance that you are going to be involved in, first considering your own strengths and those of others in order to make decisions on the performing/non-performing roles to be undertaken. Through activities on an individual and collaborative basis, you will develop the skills necessary to be successful in your particular role. This may be done through research, further observations and experiences, use of outside or in-school expertise, and regular attendance and practise at rehearsals.
Participation and performance - This strand brings the experiences of the arts as an observer and a participant together in the final group performance.
