4-H Art in the Park
Saturday, May 21, 2022
New Glarus Woods State Park

Participants will explore character and story development in the theater arts through a playful morning in the woods. Drawing from the natural environment, participants will create a character and learn how to bring this character to life on stage. We will explore sounds in nature and ways sound and music can help tell a story in the theater. By the end of the workshop we will weave multiple characters into a short story and performance. Join us for this fun-filled day of theatrical play in the park!

This event is free and open to 4-H youth in grades 3-8. Event will take place weather-permitting. Park sticker will be required only if participants will have a vehicle parked on site for the duration of the event. Register by Sunday, May 8 at: https://forms.gle/oWNKNW7bPeo7HQy9A
