Winnipeg School Division (WSD) students took to the stage to mark the 2017 finale of the Quantum Arts Program.
The program showcases student talent and artistic growth in drama, film, dance and visual art.
Through the Quantum Arts Program, 102 Grade 5 to 8 students from across WSD spent eight weeks receiving specialized arts training. Students spent two hours, twice a week working with professionals at Prairie Theatre Exchange, Royal Winnipeg Ballet and Winnipeg Art Gallery. Quantum also offers two classes for students with an interest in film: a film and televsion acting program with the Prairie Theatre Exchange and a filmmaking course with the Winnipeg Film Group.
On March 16, students and their families gathered at the Winnipeg Art Gallery's Muriel Richardson Auditorium for a showcase of their work with the Winnipeg Art Gallery, Royal Winnipeg Ballet School (Recreational Division) and Prairie Theatre Exchange.
On March 21, students enrolled in the acting for film and television class will gather with their families at Prairie Theatre Exhange's Colin Jackson Studio Theatre for their own finale. Elsewhere on that same date, students in the Winnipeg Film Group's filmmaking class will have their finale at the Cinematheque Theatre.
Quantum is funded through the WSD's Children's Heritage Fund and its generous donours (for more information, visit here).
