Arts Integration at Home – Excursions

Posted Monday, April 27, 2020

Today’s arts integration at home activity is a playful way to get the week started. Excursions invites kids (and adults) to practice the skills of observation and presence, and most importantly creativity through spontaneity.


Watch a time-lapse video of Sarah playing Excursions.

I learned Excursions from Lauria Magovern and Psalmayene 24 when I worked at Arena Stage in Washington, D.C. Excursions belongs to the repertoire of Living Stage Theatre Company, which was a venture of Arena Stage from 1966 – 1995.

These activities are curated by Sarah Coleman, Portland Ovations’ Director of Engagement l School Programs. Sarah is a theatre educator, an arts integration specialist, and a former classroom teacher who has taught students in grades K – college as well as led professional development workshops for teachers around the country for over 15 years.
