“Scrooging for Kids” with The Revolution School
Workshop | Arts Learning Lab @ Home
Saturday, August 28, 2021 | 11 AM – 12:30 PM PST
Awaken your hidden super powers, make a player card, construct a gadget belt, and co-build revolutionary worlds based in care, acceptance, and creativity.
In ‘Scrooging for Kids,’ we will adventure within our strengths and vulnerabilities to awaken how they can ALL be superpowers. How can throwing a tantrum, crying, or lying be a superpower? How can I fly? Where do I get my strength from? Let’s learn how our embarrassment or anger can be tools for our superheroes/supervillains!
We will workshop our superpowers into player cards and then build our superhero/supervillain gadget belt or whatever gadget contraption you can imagine (a fanny pack, breast plate, crown, escape satchel, pocket book, etc.).
Our gadget devices with player cards can be worn whenever we need to activate our superhero/supervillain powers.
To introduce yourself to the group, please bring a superhero name AND a supervillain name to share. Feel free to come dressed in your superhero/supervillain attire (we will be)!
