This Wintario sponsored programs was in three hearing-impaired schools in Ontario. The teachers when we arrived said we would be disappointed – we were the opposite.. the children were so creative and came alive. We know they would be as creative today as they were then!
Myself (Della, and Dale Bertrand did Ocean Painting, Body Energy Rainbows & Storytelling. Movement was with Merian Soto and Tedrian Chizik from New York. Alice Brownlee (Jerome) collaborated in many parts and she translated the story into sign language and the children’s and teachers comments from sign language into English.
Loved doing the Body Rainbows, magical times
It’s funny how some things stick in your mind.. yes, the Body Rainbows they did were awesome. They were life-size as they lied on the ground and their bodies were traced and then they painted colors or symbols that meant something special to them inside. Some made themselves mythical characters such as Egyptian Gods and Goddesses. Very creative!
