The Arts Education Program presents DISTANCE LEARNING!
The Arts Education Program launched a new way to learn! Since September 2020 we have welcomed our diverse faculty and students back with distance learning at the Grand Theatre Center for the Arts. Virtual classes are offered to provide a safe learning experience for you and your family.
While many of our classes have returned to in person instruction at the Grand, some of our instructors are offering classes through the web application ZOOM. Please look for the classes listed as “Distance Learning” when viewing the Arts Education Catalog.
The following classes are currently being offered through our Distance Learning option:
Private Music Lessons
Instructor Branden Cravalho offers 30-minute Private Music Lessons for both Guitar & Ukulele students on Wednesday evenings. Join in the next 4-week sessions now. Call our Box Office for availability or register online at www.tracyartsandrec.com.
Music Together® Classes
10-week Music Together® classes are being offered online! Adults and children ages newborn through five years come together to sing songs, experience rhythm chants, dance and move to music, play instruments, make up silly rhymes and experience a wide range of rhythmic and melodic variety. The whole family is invited to participate! Simply register one member of the family and enjoy this weekly class together. Register online at www.tracyartsandrec.com. Both Family Classes and Rhythm Kids (ages 4 to 11) classes are available!
In this introductory class, students will learn about a unique, outside the box way to break into the creative, fulfilling, and potentially lucrative industry of voice-over acting. This is a one day workshop for students 18 years and older. Register for the next online course at www.tracyartsandrec.com.
Weekly Facebook Live Art Classes
During our Summer 2020 semester, we went live on Facebook! Visual arts instructor and artist Amanda Trask taught 6 individual visual arts distance learning classes centered-around drawing. If you did not catch it live, don’t worry, you may view the past lessons on our website here. Students at home can follow along using basic art supplies such as paper and a pencil.
Facebook Live Paint Night
Visual arts instructor and artist Amanda Trask went live on Facebook for our first distance learning Paint Night on Friday, May 22, 2020. Participants followed along to create a one-of-a-kind painting from the comfort of their own home. This Paint Night is still available to everyone! Grab your paints and follow along with the video here!
Please check back regularly as we add more distance learning options!
