Through the arts I learn....
Toto, I've got a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore.
June Show 2021
Studio9 School of the Arts in Kelowna has reached an agreement with Vancouver author Celeena Saysni Antonio to use her new children’s book 2020 Baby for the basis of our multi-arts performance in June. Students are brainstorming and collaborating on ways to bring the spirit of the book to life from June 7th to 11th.
Students will be producing original music, choreography, spoken word poetry, visual art, and theatrical performances for the June show. Like Celeena’s book, the purpose is to show the light at the end of the tunnel and life b beyond 2020 featuring the ingenuity of the new generation. Studio9 focuses on collaborative original student art usually focused on local and world issues.
Science Through The Arts
Ms. Dunwoody's grade 8 and 9 Science classes were putting their core subject learning into art forms in February as part of our learning through the arts curriculum. Here the grade 9 students are doing a play on meiosis and mitosis. All you wanted to know ion a short play. Click on the image you will link to our YouTube channel for the video.
Grandma and the Pirates
Grade 10 - 12 Theatre Comp-any class performed a short play for the younger students called Grandma and the Pirates from a children's book of the same name. With COVID restrictions we cannot invite the public in but we love live performances so much we just have to do it. Our schoolmates appreciate it. Mr. Facey and his students had fun with it as we work through the winter months and need a "lift up".
All About STEAM
STEAM does not stand for hot air....oh no. It stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. To be a true learning through the arts school where arts courses and core courses often intersect, then STEAM has to be a large factor. Here the students can tell you exactly what is about.

Robotics Game Boards
Some hands-on learning and creative thinking in the 6-7 Robotics class. The essential question was.....how can you make a board game about concepts in robotics? The class groups came up with three different concepts. Then everyone got to try out each other's games and they invited others in to try them out as well.
Students in Kindergarten to Grade 3 at Studio9 School of the Arts decided they still wanted to do the traditional caroling for parents even though it could not happen live this year. Enter Mr. Zoom....and a few video add ons. Miss Sandi's class rewrote the lyrics to white Christmas with a 2020 flair. We Zoomed the entire concert to the parents in elementary grades.
