ExpressionWorks Update

It was lovely to have our wonderful Susan Anderson with us during our Arts hour of our class last week. The culinary class was a success. The hummus was extremely tasty.  There was vegetables to eat with it and pita bread which turned out well. Joanna helped with plating the vegetables and finding things in the kitchen if someone needed it. At the end of class everyone sang Happy Birthday to Susan and gave her a card. It was a delightful evening.

ExpressionWorks Update – Nov 21/2017

Last week was great as we had two former ExpressionWorks friends back in action with us…. Alanna Balicki and Jordan Power. Alanna was delighted to see some of our old friends and meet new friends as well.  Everyone had a go at leading Stretches. News was engaging and everyone loved sharing updates and practise communicating.
The last hour included multi arts where participants loved our Clown Workshop were encouraged to draw a picture of their clown’s birth place and then talked about it in front of the group.

DramaWay – ExpressionWorks update!

Hello Everyone
ExpressionWorks has been going well.
We have been delighted to have our volunteers back such as Susan Anderson, Jan Fine, Liz McEachern and Sam Webster come. Our volunteers aren’t always able to attend, but when they do , it’s wonderful.
Last two weeks the group enjoyed taking part in Radio, where the participants learned vocal exercises and performed in pairs short dialogues with one person giving the sound effects.
Prior to our Radio sessions, was our Shakespeare theme and Halloween. We were so excited to see that everyone arrived in costume and during communication circle we did a lot of tongue twisters related to Halloween. During our Shakespeare Explorations, the whole group enacted Macbeth together. It was a fun night!
The first two weeks in October we had dance and movement where our participants combined a body part with an action. Before that everyone went around the circle and mentioned one thing they like to do as well they stated and mentioned one thing that makes them happy and how they take care of themselves in terms of relaxation.
The next two weeks, we are eager to have our dearest Alanna Balicki returning to do clowning. We know everyone will be super excited to see her. I’m sure it would make her day if those of you who know her were to arrive with a card or something you’ve made for her. She’s so happy to be able to return and visit everyone.

Looking forward to seeing you all on June 8th, which is the last day for Expression Works this term.

Update for ExpressionWorks

The April Showers are upon us and boy did it rain on Thursday. The rain was the topic of interest and did create a bit of anxiety in the first half of the stretch. However as the class progressed and News Flash began, everyone was a trooper and did not let it hamper their focus.
We were all happy to note that the day for our annual TTC Outing is around the corner. In order to prepare our group for the Outing, last week we talked about safety while traveling, learned about the accessible stations and stations that have washroom. We also had a conversation around where we wait on the station, who we travel with, what we do if there are delays and the route we would take.
Before breaking into small groups and then coming together to talk about our upcoming TTC outing, we played an engaging educational game. The game involved questions that related to different scenarios on how one might feel. Each person was given a feeling like sad, excited, happy and then had to see which emotion best matched the question as they were randomly chosen from a bag.
Overall a very informative, proactive session!  We look forward to our outing tomorrow. Please bring rain gear to plan for the weather.  Looking forward to our TTC Outing on May 4th
