  Drama & Movement

   The Jackman ICS Drama Program challenges students to explore their personal
   feelings and ideas while building practical and artistic skils in drama and creative
   dance. Drama classes encourage students to develop an understanding and
   appreciation of dance and drama.
 
   Students will learn to create tableaux, machines, dances, improvisations, and skits.
   In role playing, as students "act out" the experiences of others, they learn to understand
   a variety of  points of view and motives. The goal of the Jackman ICS Drama Program
   is to help children develop confidence and artistic and collaborative skills. By entering an
   imagined world, students learn new and unique ways to view themselves and their world.
   Above all, the Jackman ICS Drama Program strives to inspire students by introducing
   them to the magic and joy of drama!

  Visual Art

   Children are born artists, and their time in art should be a joyful process of
   discovery, self-expression, and the building on of existing ideas and skills.
   Students in the art studio will learn and practice creating and communicating
   responsibly and respectfully in a collaborative space.

   Classes often begin with a brief introduction, activity, or discussion before
   students embark on their own discovery of methods and materials. Students will
   explore the elements and principles of design through collage, drawing, painting,
   clay and sculpture, construction, printmaking, and photography.

  Music

   The Music Program at Jackman ICS explores rhythm, melody, tone, colour,
   dynamics, genre, and more. Musical movement games and singing are an
   important part of the program.

   In Primary Music (Nursery-Senior Kindergarten), the students focus on
   movement, singing, listening, and playing simple instruments. They explore the
   concept of 'steady beat' and enjoy rhythmic and melodic games and activities. In
   Junior Music (Grade 1-6), students continue to develop their sense of rhythm,
   melody, tone, and genre. Students will learn and use the solfedge system to
   better understand, melody, harmony, intervals, and chords. Working in
   ensemble, students learn composition, improvisation, and performance skills.
