4th annual ARTrageous event set for Friday, Nov. 8th

Last year’s cast of the ARTrageous production was all smiles!

If you love supporting the Arts in our community, especially in our schools, then you will want to be at ARTrageous 2019 on November 8th at The Learning Center Charter School.  

ARTrageous is an annual, themed celebration of the Arts. The event features music, dancing, dramatic performances, galleries of student work and more.   

This year’s theme is an old time radio show.  Students have studied what entertainment was like in the 1920s and 1930s before television.  The school’s theater troupe, the Grow Zone Players, will be performing an actual episode of “The Thin Man” while also creating the sound effects from the story.

“The Thin Man” was a weekly radio show that starred Nick and Nora as crime detectives solving a mysterious case each week.

“This is a different style of performance than we’ve done in the past but one that our young actors are very excited to share with our community,” said drama program director, Ryan Bender.  

Along with displays of student work and delicious hors d’oeuvres, there will be local performers including members of the Ridgeline Literary Alliance.  The TLC Grow Zone Players will present their live radio performance of “The Thin Man” at 7:30pm.

Mark your calendar for ARTrageous 2019 on Nov 8th at 6pm at The Learning Center Charter School located at 945 Conaheeta Street in Murphy.  Adult tickets are $10 and students are $5.

5th Grade – Chemistry as Art

Fifth grade students recently completed a science project related to their study the properties and changes of matter. The class conducted an experiment called “Chemistry as Art.” The experiment involved mixing different types of matter together to make paint. 

Students created their own egg tempera paint and used it on poster board and clay.  They enjoyed making their own paint and observing how you can mix egg yolks and liquid water color or food coloring to make paint.  They were also surprised to find that this method has been used many years by artists as a paint medium.  And, they created some amazing paintings as a result!
