Creating Life Long Learners Through the Creative Arts
Who we are and why we are here
There is art and music and
drama and performance
yes, in everything.
In a rainstorm, a bright sunny day,
a clear starry night.In a hurricane,
a tornado, a wild winter blizzard.
In life. In death.
In a field of flowers.
In a trash can filled with garbage.
In mathematics, in science,
in history and in literature.
It is how we learn about the past,
and how we create the future.
"The music is all around you.
All you have to do is listen." William Shakespeare
Listen, Look and Hear.
The creative arts are the missing link in education.
My participation in the Arts Literacy Project,developed by
Brown University gave my life goals focus.
The Performance Cycle Technique
from the Project pair’s literature with artistic expression,
helping students find the means of telling their own stories.
I apply the Performance Cycle Technique to all programs at Second
Stage Studio. This technique provides teachers, artists, and youth
leaders with the tools to engage students in a process of deep
understanding by building a community of learners that centers on a
text. Students respond to the text and demonstrate this knowledge
through high quality performances and artistic presentations.
Second Stage Studio is designed to create a warm, friendly
and engaging environment inviting each and everyone who enters to
become inspired; to let go and let the spirit of creativity take hold of
them. I believe that the creative arts are essential elements in
education, in learning, in developing, in maturing. Students at Second
Stage Studio are learning to express themselves via the written and
spoken word taking the shape of prose, poetry, song, art and
performance. They communicate; they contemplate; they collaborate;
They are Student Artists.
They have been encouraged to
tell their own stories and they are.
They find their voice.
We share our knowledge,
and lifelong learning begins. Joanne Vecchio Founder and Artistic Director Second Stage Studio
