Today’s arts integration activity, Mirror, is easy and low-risk. You can do it standing, from a chair or from six feet away! This simple activity helps with focus, responsibility and trust.


Mirror is credited to the improviser and teacher Viola Spolin. It was first included in her widely used book Improvisation for the Theater. You can see a longer description of the activity in the link below from the Drama-Based Instruction website created by Drama for Schools at The University of Texas at Austin.


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.
