Happenings at the Club
The Kids Performance theater has their auditions coming up for the BIG BAD performance they will be showing this June. Each kid has prepared a monologue and a song and will be auditioning in front of four different directors. The Torch club will be going on an Art Tour around Salem to read messages that other artist communicate through their public art. Torch will also continue to design their own mosaic mural that will be hung this May. On Valentine’s day Torch Club had a baked goods sale to raise money for materials for their mural project! The Art Club will start to learn about different techniques of watercolor using salt, markers, and crayons. After learning the techniques, they will have the opportunity to create their own piece using these techniques.
