Description



Term 3 2019 Saturday Club will be focusing on the creative arts. The Junior program will be four different art sessions delivered by artist and art teacher Lorelei Siegloff. The program looks to expand the participants vocabulary and understanding in fine arts and expose them to some of the underpinning skills and techniques that go in to producing fine art.

The Intermediate and Senior program will be two sessions on musical composition by Sebastian Phlox from the Elder Conservatory coupled with two session of drama by Sue Lyons. The drama sessions are part of a longer term investigation by GTCASA with regard to offering/delivering standalone (not school based) GTCASA Tournament of Minds teams in future years (https://www.tom.edu.au/).

Session 1: Fantasy Maps (Line)

Children develop their skills in cartography and illustration using watercolour paints and pens. They are encouraged to create their own fantasy world to engage their imaginations and think about different ways to express story. They can bring their own watercolour paints, brushes and pens, or they will be provided for those who need them. Quality rag paper will be supplied.

Session 2: Surrealist Collage (Scale/Composition)

Children learn about the surrealist movement and see a range of examples of Surreal collages. Using magazines they will be challenged to create Surreal narratives that play with scale and context. Children will use scissors and craft knives under supervision. This hones their fine motor skills and their patience. All materials (magazines, sharps & glue) will be supplied

Session 3: Watercolour Experiments (Colour)

Children will learn the basics of stretching and preparing watercolour paper. They will then do a series of experimental exercises that allow them to investigate the possibilities and plasticity of the medium. These exercises also allow them to play with colour and see how colours interact. Once they have completed their experiments they will be encouraged to develop their own abstract composition. They can bring their own watercolour paints and brushes, or they will be provided for those who need them. Quality rag paper will be supplied.

Session 4: Polymaterial Self-Portraits (Form)

Children will be introduced to the work of several artists who recycle materials to make their work. They will then use recycled materials to make their own self portraits. They will be challenged to consider 3 dimensional forms and think about how the forms in their own faces come together to make shapes. All materials (recycled objects, sharps & glue) will be supplied.

Drama Sessions 1 and 2

The GTCASA Drama Challenge!

In 4 hours (two consecutive Saturday Club sessions) can you work with a group of like-minded strangers to create a short play to show your parents? Your group will have a choice of topics, which will require you to: think creatively, share your ideas, and then work as a team to develop a plot, create characters, improvise your play, rehearse it and perform it. You will learn creative thinking, teamwork, time management and performance skills. You will be asked to design, and then bring from home (or make your own) very simple costume/prop/set items between the first and second sessions. Are you up to this fun Drama Challenge? (No experience needed.)

Composition Presenter: Sebastian Phlox

Sebastian is currently completing his doctoral studies in composition at the Elder Conservatorium of Music, under Graeme Koehne and Charles Bodman Rae. As part of his thesis, he is working on writing microtonally-textured pipe organ music, using the mechanics of the instrument to manipulate pitch and timbre through extended performance techniques. Sebastian also works with electronic music, particularly sound art based on hardware and circuit-bending. When not writing, Sebastian is an organist and conductor, regularly working with orchestras and choirs around Adelaide. An early music enthusiast, he also enjoys performing occasional baroque concerts with a small ensemble. He is principal organist at Crafers Church of the Epiphany.

Composition Session 1

Composing ideas: Exploring programmatic music and how composers take an idea, sound or image and create a musical work from it. Listening to examples from early music through to film scores to discuss the musical elements of sonic depictions.



Composition Session 2

Scales and tonality: What are the systems used for creating musical works? How might a composer redesign these systems and create their own musical tools? Encouraging students to investigate pitch structure in musical works.
