Examples of the “Shapes & Sculptures” activity done as part of the ARTS in Motion program in collaboration with the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre

Partnering with various community organizations has allowed Art Expression, Inc. to develop unique, innovative programs that reach out to even more children throughout the surrounding Pittsburgh area. An example of these partnerships would be the program variant ARTS in Motion, which incorporates qualified educational staff from the Pittsburgh Ballet Theater to conduct the dance & movement portion of the workshops. The Ballet staff work alongside Art Expression’s facilitators to create a holistic experience that engages the students and allows them to express themselves both physically and through visual art.

Current and past organizations include:

Carlow University

Carnegie Library of Homestead

Students in this ARTS in Motion program created chimeras and examined how their unique animals move and express themselves. These girls created a pig/panda/unicorn creature, and problem-solved using different color choices and ways to move within two boxes. Students then choreographed their own performances using their chimeras, in collaboration with Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre.
