Crafting- Holiday Mashup

 (Ages 7-10) THURSDAYS October 6th, 13th, 20th from 4pm-5pm

In this class students will enter a fantasy world of properties, creating haunting ornaments, creepy presents, unnerving toys and more. If your student enjoys theatre but would like to understand the work that goes on behind the scenes, then this class is for you! (students may use a glue gun under supervision).

Students will learn the parts of the long sword, the art of safety and fake swords, as well as being able to do basic blocks and parries.
