Project Description

Oakland SOL: Performance Art Class

At Oakland SOL, students in the Performance Art Class learned a variety of different performance art techniques, including improvisation, slap-stick comedy, and spoken word poetry. The kids collaborated with each other and their performance art teacher to develop two performance pieces that integrated music, poetry, ensemble cast pieces, and incorporated original student work. Through this program, they developed a strong sense of cultural pride and deep appreciation for both their own and other cultures and forms of cultural expression.
