MRH Visits COCA
Center of Creative Arts (COCA) has been providing meaningful artistic experiences to the St. Louis community for more than two decades. COCA’s multidisciplinary and multicultural arts programs include performances in a 400 seat theatre, educational classes, camps, and workshops serving kids from as young as six months of age to adults. Artists’ residencies, exhibits of contemporary art, and an extensive outreach program offered to low-income youth are other ways that COCA provides these experiences, extending knowledge of the arts.
The first grade classes visited COCA on October 2, 2014 to view a play titled: Kindur: The Adventurous Life of Icelandic Sheep. This play was an interactive multimedia play where the children had the opportunity to participate by going on stage and, through touch, bring to life a setting of glaciers, volcanoes and flower-filled meadows. The first grade students at Early Childhood Center are fortunate to participate in an eight-week classroom residency with the very talented Roxane McWilliams. Mrs. McWilliams has collaborated with the classroom teachers to include movement and music through eight sessions focused around the first grade force and motion inquiry unit.
