Whitman with Caren Graham | May 2012
Theater artist Caren Graham of Young Audiences worked with 4th and 5th graders at Whitman Elementary (SE Portland) in a Right Brain residency focused on theater and character development. Through the use of tableau, students demonstrated a deeper understanding of the elements of a story and character relationship. By working in small groups, students collaborated to come up with frozen statues depicting a story, which they performed in front of their peers.
